Spring cleaning in the barn is way more fun than spring cleaning in the house, so now’s the time to get organized for the season.
By Reese Koffler Stanfield, USDF gold medalist, FEI-certified instructor, owner of Maplecrest Farm
The days are getting warmer and the show season is just around the corner. Empty out your show box and take an inventory of what you have and what you need. Replace items that are worn out or used up. There is nothing worse than grabbing an almost empty bottle of ShowSheen on show morning. Inspect your tack and equipment to ensure that it is clean and in good repair. Wash your show pads; take your show coat to the cleaners. Make sure your show clothes, boots and stock ties are clean and ready to go. If you need something new, start looking for sales now so that you have what you need in time for your first show of the season.
