During and after the competition

On the day of the competition the tack may need a quick rub over once it is on the horse to remove any mess acquired when the horse has been warming up, in showing this is important. If the horse has more than one class and will be wearing the same tack again, it may need a quick wipe in between times to clean the bit and remove sweat or other marks from the leather.

The day after the competition

The tack should cleaned as before and put away into the tackroom. Any repairs needed should be attended to now so that they are done in plenty time for the next competition.
