Pre-Show / Show Checklists?
Show. Next weekend. Help?

Here's what I have so far. Now I'm going off memory, so please add anything I will need! Maybe some remedies for that "pre-show glow"?

-Practice + spare saddle
-Two girths
-Practice + show headstall
-Gaming + performance bit
-Breat Plate
-Show pads + Practice Pads
-Vaseline + baby oil (he is arabian... why not flaunt it?)
-Corn Starch (he has socks..)
-Shampoo and Conditioner
-Polo Wraps, Bell Boots, Splint Boots, Gaming (reining) boots
-Hoof Polish
-Show Sheen
-Water Buckets
-Bale of grass hay
-Ribbon String
-Tail bag (for warming up)

Anything Else?

I'd add the totally obvious stuff
-Grooming equipment (incl. brushes, hoof pick, comb/ brush for mane and tail etc)
-Pitch fork, a lot of places don't like it when you don't pick up after your horses accidents
-Broom, it helps to be able to sweep all the poo and whatnot out of the trailer before your horse goes back in
-For you, don't forget extra show shirts, breeches, jacket (if you have another), gloves (even if they're the ugly at home gloves), hair nets

That's all I can think of... for now... Good luck!

Whenever I make a list I first decide on the categories of the things I would need.

-Tack (saddles, bridles, pads, girths, boots...anything else that goes on the horse
-Grooming (shampoo, brushes, rubber bands...I'd also include any buckets or hoses for bathing).
-Trailer (broom...for the same reason haley said..., extra hooks or buckets for water)
- Rider (I might or might not make sub categories here for clothing and grooming then list those individual items under the subcats).

I'm like this when we go camping too. It drives my husband crazy. I'm just OCD though.

HAY TWINE! (really, never go anywhere without it)

LOTS of water bottles for you! Stay hydrated!
A horse sheet in case it rains and gets slightly chilly (it happens!)
