Looking forward to the summer show season? It's never too early to begin planning! Ensure your horse is prepped and primed for the upcoming year by starting now. Getting your horse ready for showtime requires some effort, but we've got your back!

Our Show Prep guide offers valuable tips and top-notch products to help you breeze through the preparation phase and get your horse show-ready. 

 

Training & Conditioning  

Training is the foundation of success in any competition. Prioritise regular training sessions to improve your horse's performance and build their stamina. Work on specific disciplines required for the show, such as jumping, dressage, or trail classes. Conditioning exercises help to enhance strength, flexibility, and endurance, ensuring your horse is at their peak during the event. 

 

Health & Nutrition 

A well-rounded diet and proper health care are paramount. Ensure your horse's diet is balanced and tailored to their needs. Regular veterinary check-ups, vaccinations, dental care, and farrier visits are essential. A healthy horse performs better in the ring. 

 

Grooming & Bathing  

Grooming isn't just about aesthetics; it's about health and presentation. Regular grooming sessions keep your horse's coat, mane, and tail clean and healthy. Bathing before the show removes dirt and sweat, giving your horse a radiant appearance. Use quality grooming products like shampoos, conditioners, and a detangler to ensure a glossy and tidy look.
