  4. a place to wash (preferably a wash rack) (with a hose, water and a place to tie safely)

  6. shampoo
  7. sponge (if you don’t have one, just use a rubber curry comb)
  8. sweat scraper
  9. and of course, you.

So just grab your stuff, put them in the bucket and take your horse (with halter and lead rope on!) and go to the wash rack!  Tie your horse up (with a quick release not) Follow these steps to wash your horse:
