- Learn to take action - don't wait for someone to tell you what needs to be done. Take the lead, clean the stalls, practice the showmanship, keep your animals healthy by pre-treating for fungus and ringworm.
- Be adaptable - change what isn't working. Learn from those around you. Watch the older exhibitors in the ring. Always ask questions and take every opportunity to learn, adapt and change your approach.
- Never be afraid of failure - try new things and don't let fear get in your way.
