i would get him ready befor you put him in the traler.then quickly go over him again.This might same you a lot of time.I almost always get my horse ready befor the show and then quickly go over him when i arrive...i hope this helps!!

If I'm going to compete a long way away, I'll wash a day before, rug the horse up to it's eyeballs and then plait the night before, without rolling them up.
I then get up bright and early, roll my plaits and then straight onto the float.
At the show, just a quick spray with something like cowboy magic to give the coat a shine, and a quick going over with a soft body brush and you're done ;)

Totally agreed with all of that!!

I also clean the stall spotless before leaving that night! Less of anything to get my horse dirty again is a good thing!!:-)
