What type of show are you competing in?

I usually do the following for my horse when grooming for a show (in no particular order):

- clean hooves and apply hoof black
- wash whole horse if necessary, otherwise just mane and tail
- clean inside nostrils, around mouth and eyes
- groom heaps to bring out the shine
- plait mane day before and put on skinny hood overnight
- trim feathers, whiskers (not too short though, for his sake), ears, under chin, coronets etc
- clean tack really well
- you may also want to apply quarter marks

That's all I can think of at the moment, Hope I helped

If you are going to wash your horse's mane and tail don't do it right before the show. Wait a couple days, otherwise it'll be too slippery to braid. Let the oils come back a bit. Hope that helps. And good luck on the show!
