Pre-Competition Preparation for a Supreme Turnout
Tuesday 03 May 2011
Be ready for the show ring with a few handy tips from the team at show preparation experts Supreme Products. For a stress-free day and plenty of time to spare here are a few things you can do the day before!
Pulled To Perfection
For a tidy and smart appearance it is essential to make sure your horse’s mane and tail is pulled and looks even and neat. This is one thing that can and should be done in advance.
When possible try to pull the mane on a warm day or after exercise, when the pores of the skin are open.
If you are finding it hard to firmly hold the mane as it slips out of your fingers, try spraying a little Supreme Products Easy Plait to help you gain more grip.
If your horse or pony proves extremely difficult when pulling his mane or tail Supreme Products offer a superb alternative; the Supreme Products Thinning Comb.
This is fantastic for pulling tails humanely in to shape, it gives the appearance of a pulled tail and is a very popular choice for people who have horses or ponies who dislike having their tails pulled.
After pulling manes and tails, try spraying Supreme Products Moisturise & Condition, it helps moisturise the skin and hair follicle, soothing any soreness or itchiness caused by pulling.
Always bath one or two days before a show, weather permitting. A good bath with Supreme Products High Shine Shampoo is great for taking out all the grease and dirt, accumulated from the field and the stable or to remove build-up of products and restore the coat to a high lustre finish.
Supreme Products offer a wide range of shampoos including Chestnut Shampoo, Blue Shampoo, Palomino Shampoo, Stain Remover Shampoo and Show Shampoo & Conditioner.
Once trimmed and bathed, Supreme Products De Luxe Coat Gloss can help lay the coat flat adding shine and producing a coat that is polished and gleaming.
For the mane and tail use Supreme Products Detangle & Shine to keep show manes and tails tangle-free and lustrous.
Next on to the white bits!
Supreme Products Leg & Body Whitener is ideal and very versatile as you can use it as a powder or as a paste.
For the night before paste on to clean white legs, bandage the legs and leave overnight. In the morning all you have to do is remove the bandages and give the legs a quick brush and you will have a bright white gleam.
After all that hard work getting ready,use a Supreme Products Body Wrap to help keep the coat and mane immaculate overnight ready for the show.
