i use 'animal shampoo' which has pink label. it gets everything out!! once washed out & sweat scraped i spritz showshine on. wait till dry, brush then show shine again and wipe over with cloth or sheepskin mit. manes & tails i wash with shampoo then condition with tresemme!
with white socks, after a bath, mix chalk powder with water into a paste, paint on & bandage till morning, where you can take bandages off at show & white down - voila!!
I had a pony allergic to baby oil, so i use aloevera baby oil now on knees, hocks, muzzle & minimal around around eyes and jaw line :)
Make sure you use the right bit... and accessories, eg/ rugby pelham should have a slip head.
White and feathers - Vosene!!! I swear by it and have plant of white bits and lots of feathers!!!
Trim beards about a week before show - so the dont look freshly trimmed.
Feet should also be manicured, even if you cant see much of them...
Always enter the ring on the right (as opposed wrong) rein, can never remember which this is, so im sure someone will enlighten me.... I just tend to follow!!!
Dont be afraid to circle to find more space.... Or go into the corners more!!!
Really get your horse to at least try to extend whilst changing the rein in trot - judges remember this, even with hairy cobbies!!!
Im sure i'll remember some more in a bit!!!
