Andy Tack, Walsall’s favourite equestrian supplies shop, provides some top tips on preparing your horse for the show season.
Horse Clean and Groom:
Bath your horse so nice and clean, and use the most suitable products to bring out the best in their appearance:
Cleaning Products: Make sure your horse looks in top condition by treating them to a colour enhancing shampoo. For great results, use a stain removal shampoo before your regular shampoo.
Grooming Products: Use a specific male and tail conditioner and use a coat shine after cleaning.
Cleaning Equipment: Having the right products to clean your horse is important so invest in some wash mitts, scrapers and sponges.
Hoof Care: Check horse's shoes to ensure that none are loose or worn down too far.
Look the Part:
Rider Wear: The rider themselves should look show ready so make sure you have the right gear including show jacket, gloves and cane.
Tack Cleaning: The cleanliness of your tack is also judged in competitions so make sure your saddle and equipment are clean and shiny.
