Showing Your Horse

Showing your horse is an art that can result in a lot of financial gains, but you won't get very far if you can't prepare yourself for the showing.

Preparing yourself

Showing your horse takes a lot out of you and your horse. So, to make sure you both put forth your best effort, you have to prepare yourself and your horse for the show. Preparing means preparing yourself both physically and mentally.

First, let's look at the physical aspect of showing your horse. Though you're not lifting weights or running all day, showing your horse is physically exhausting. You need to prepare yourself for a 10-12 hour day of being alert and on your feet. This means you're going to need a good night sleep. You're also going to need to stock up on healthy foods. This means bringing plenty of fruit bars and nuts, such as almonds, with you so you can fuel up at any point in the day. Venues that host horse shows frequently have unhealthy snack options. Bringing your own snacks along will keep you tip top all day. Also, remember to bring plenty of water because hydration is critical to how you feel and perform.
