The showmanshippers headed into the arena first thing Saturday morning. The arena was split into two rings to accommodate the large numbers of entries in a more timely fashion to help the day’s schedule. Ranae Hansen of Mondovi, Wisconsin, won the Rookie amateur showmanship with Macro Manager. Clint Whittingham of Brandon, Manitoba, won the Youth 14-18 showmanship with Addicted To Baileys. On the East Arena side, exhibitors were greeted warmly by Ring Steward Kathy Schroeder.
“Good morning," Schroeder said to contestants. "How are you? Do you have any questions? Are you ready? Good luck!”
Following the showmanship, the gelding halter classes took center stage in the Warner Coliseum.
