Tuesday Tips: Show Ring Ready

We’ve heard lots of tricks to get your horse show-ready over the course of our years in the saddle, and almost none of them involved really expensive grooming sprays. If you’re overhauling your show kit for next year, don’t forget:

    WD-40. Not only is it a great tool in getting those pull-on bell boots on or off, this stuff can also be a great hoof dressing for clay-based arenas. Spray on and wipe before you ride and touch up before the next round. It’s also good at keeping ice from building up in a shod hoof, too.

  • Corn starch. It’s cheap and a very fine powder, which makes it good to boost the white on socks. Just rub a little onto  clean, dry leg and use a brush or rag to blend until it looks natural–just don’t do this post-hoof oil. Talcum powder works, too.
  • Baby oil. Lightly dampen a rag with baby oil and rub over the nose and under the eyes for a more refined look. Can be lightly applied across the coat for extra shine–just be careful not to overdo it.
  • Hair gel. It’s a girl’s best friend, especially if your horse’s mane isn’t braided.
