Preparing for Show

So in May I am taking my mare to a weekend long show. Well two different shows back to back to be more exact. One local open competition, and one AQHA sanctioned show a few counties over the next day. We have hauled to day long shows in the past and she's always done fine, but this year I feel we are ready to be more competitive.

She is in show ready shape. Being ridden by myself or my trainer at least 5 times a week varying in length and intensity. We know how to travel, and travel well. Her tack fits perfectly, and she will be shod a week or two before. I am just wondering if there is anything more I can do to make sure she does not become muscle sore or crabby especially come the second day. I want her to be as prepared as I can make her.

Any tips, tricks, or advice for those longer show weekends would be great!
