The Expo recognizes the importance of teaching and celebrating showmanship skills, and is thrilled to offer a contest where the focus is solely on the exhibitors. Our showmanship contest will continue to be a no fit show, and exhibitors will be judged strictly on their showmanship skills. No emphasis will be placed on fitting skills or animal quality. Exhibitors do have the option of fitting their animal for the sole purpose of personal practice.
Questions about showmanship can be directed to Expo staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-643-6476. Stay tuned for information about registering for the 2021 showmanship contest!
