Have you ever gone to a horse show and realize you forgot your horse’s fly spray, or hoof polish? Or, enter a class and forget the pattern?
Getting organized the week before the competition will make the day less stressful and more fun. Making a list of key things to remember, like directions, grooming products, or a change of clothes, will keep you organized. Reviewing your check-list and packing all supplies in advance will take some stress away and give you extra time on competition day to focus on your horse.
Here are some other great tips from the video!
1) Have your horse, tack and clothes clean and organized.
2) Learn your test or pattern the week before the competition.
