Just like real horse shows, Breyer horse showers need to make sure they have all the supplies they need on the day of the show! Packing for a show can help you prepare for the show and save time and stress on show day. With a few easy tips you can put together your perfect show kit and be well on your way to the winners circle.
The most important thing to bring to a show is yourself and your horses. Your horses will require a tag or a card at the show for identification so be sure to make these before you pack and bring extra blank ones because chances are, one will go missing along the way. When you are packing your horses it’s also a good idea to make a list of all the horses you are bringing so that you can make sure they all get there, get into their classes and then get home at the end of the day.
Packing a show first aid kit is also a good idea. Think of anything you might need through the course of the day and pack it into a small bag. Things you might want to think about bringing are, a brush for dusting, a few pens and pencils, a note pad, sticky wax and tweezers if you show performance and acrylic paints for touching up rubs. That’s not all you can bring though! Pack whatever you think you might be able to use at the show and over time you’ll create your perfect show kit!
Lastly you’ll want to bring things that you need for a whole day out. Eat well and drink enough water throughout the day so that you’ll have the energy to compete with your horses. It’s also a good idea to wear comfortable clothing and shoes as you’ll probably end up spending a lot of time walking and enjoying all the beautiful horses!
No matter what, you’ll have a wonderful time at any Breyer Horse show. If you’re ready to get your feet wet, check out Golden Oak Stables’ Live Shows coming up for the year, there’s no better place to start!
