Florida 4-H Horse Show
To make sure you have all the supplies you need for the show, it would be best to print a few different checklists off the internet, and even make one yourself. It would be best to have a few because some things may have some basic things you need, like hay, buckets, grain, pitchforks, a fan and your show clothes, but others may have some more unusual things like, extra Chicago Screws, sun block, camera, extra camera film, or a lint remover. The check list helps you remember all of these things.
You may also need to borrow, buy, or even fix some tack. Before you buy something that you may never use again, ask your friends if they have what you’re looking for. They might even be willing to sell it to you for less than you would get it in a store. If your friends don’t have what you need, you can find a local tack store that has what you need. You’re going to need hay and grain for a few days, so if you are running out of that you will need to buy that too. Also, try on and make sure there isn’t anything wrong with your show clothes. Make sure you have all show clothes that you need.
Finally, practice with your horse to make sure both you and your horse are personally ready. If you have a spooky horse, desensitize them to things that you might encounter at the show, or if your horse needs a tune up(or a review on what they have learned so when you are in the show ring and you ask them to do something, they know exactly what to do) get that done, and make sure that you work on things that you need to improve on. You can even have a dress rehearsal with your horse to see how everything looks.
Once you have done those steps, you are ready to go to the show and have a great time! Good luck to everyone and have an awesome time!!!
