Packing for a Fall Show

Hi all, quick on the heels of our last blog, we wanted to add this little side-note.  Since we have the wonderful Sonoma Horse Park offering 7 competition weeks throughout the year, for many of you the Halloween Show will be your first off the property this year.  Packing and preparing, therefore, could pose some questions.  We are here to answer!  Please ensure everything on our upcoming list is clean and packed neatly inside your tack trunk by sunday morning, as the horses will be leaving monday morning and we like to be organized!  Ok here is the FCF packing list:

-Bridle & Martingale
-Boots or clean Polo Wraps
-Clean Standing Wraps and Bandages (some of you may not be in ownership of these, as it is easy to use the FCF stockpile when at home. Please note, we will NOT be packing extras, you are responsible for these items and your hard-working horse deserves them.  If you do not own these items, please visit the Equestrian's Concierge, who will happily outfit you!)
-Clean Saddle Pads
-Shipping Halter or Leather Halter (Safest when tied in the horse vans)
-1 Clean Sheet
-1 Clean Heavy Blanket (yes it's getting that cold at night, your newly clipped horses will appreciate it!)
-Your Personal Equipment (helmets, boots, gloves, spurs, etc should all be inside)
-1 Clean Tack Trunk Cover

Hopefully that covers the essentials, what is not needed are grooming or care supplies.  These will all be supplied by the FCF set-up.  If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please do not hesitate to ask Dusty, Chelsea, or Giana.  They will happily steer you in the right direction!  We're very excited for this fun event and hope it entices more of you to visit the many wonderful show facilities offered in California!
