THIS IS HELPFUL
Hey,if your doing a photo show and need a glossy horse, first, wash your horse with little bit of soap then, rub some VASSILEN gel on the horse. ;)

I like to be extra prepared so I would pack all my snacks in the morning then pack up the ,models after you have ran the car for 5 mins with the air condition on.

Don't be afraid to show a horse just because it has some flaws! I once brought a scratched-up model to a show simply on a whim and he ended up as the Overall Grand Champion! You'll never know how a horse will do until you try. And don't give up on a model just because it doesn't get a ribbon on the first time out. Try again, maybe with some documentation - every show and every judge is different. Try talking to the judges after the class is over, too. They'll be able to tell you why they chose the horses they did and give you tips to make your entries better.


Please tell me how scratched he was?!!

Keep a small box with "needed supplies" with your live show stuff. Keep and extra pen (or 2), small note pad, blank leg tags, small bits of leather if your a performance shower, extra sticky wax, and some touch up paint & small tipped paint brush, band aids, etc. This should be your "emergency" kit. And just like any other emergncy kit you need to check it every so often.

As said above, documentation is super important. I had a judge tell the other showers that documentation similar to mine was the best thing you could do to your model. Dusting it off is also very important.

I've lost count of how many times documentation has helped me out! And it's not just a way to help your horses get ribbons - it can actually be really fun and informative. Even if you don't find what exactly what you're looking for, you may run into something that could be useful later on. A lot of the time my Google searches come back with results that aren't what I wanted, but if I see something that catches my eye I'll bookmark that page and save it for later. Who knows? Maybe some day I'll need documentation for a cremello thoroughbred or a brindle warmblood!

I find that giving the model a good breed is a great way to earn extra points. For example, you may have a horse that resembles a Quarter Horse, but do some research. You can find a more rare breed that will work too. Make some documentation to help, and set it up there beside your model. The judges love it when there is a really nice set of documentation and will award you more points!
