Showing cows is much harder than anyone imagines, so when I was asked to show in the All-American showmanship contest I was so nervous. Last weekend I took a trip to Harrisburg to show my cow in the showmanship contest, I got there Friday afternoon and showed on Sunday.
When it came to Sunday morning the nervousness began, this was a big show I was showing against one hundered fourty other kids my age. Then the show began I was in the seventh class I watched all the classes before me and noticed they were doing very well, this put a lot more pressure on me. Finally it was my time to show I did all the things I was taught to do, we were pulled into line and stood there anxiously waiting for the result, the judge pulled out people to move to the semi finals. When she called my number I was extremely excited.
While waiting for my semi final class I knew these classes were even more difficult I stood outside the show ring waiting and watching. Then It was my class for semi finals I was super nervous. As we walked around I got negative thoughts in my head that there was no way I was moving on. She lined us up and we waited patiently; as they were calling numbers I heard my number. I felt this up rise of joy and happiness; I was moving on to the finals.
After the last class of semi finals we went in for the final round this was my time to shine and show everyone how good of a showman I truly am. We came in did our thing, and she lined us up. First she announced the ten that got participant ribbons and then she announced the top ten, and I was still standing out there, my heart was racing as she kept going down and I was still standing there. It came to the last two people and I was out there. When she said the other girls name for second it was as if my heart stopped; I had won!! I got first out of one hundered fourty participants.
