How to Show Your 4-H Goat in a Showring

Remember to have fun and smile. Your goat senses it if you are nervous or upset.

Things You'll Need

  • Pet Collars
  • Grooming Brush
  • Lead Ropes


    • 1

      Make sure your goat is clean and ready to show.

    • 2

      Dress in clean, wrinkle-free clothes. Check with fair officials about a dress code.

    • 3

      Use a chain collar to show your goat. A chain-type dog collar works well.

    • 4

      Walk slowly in the ring. Do not crowd the goat in front of you.

    • 5

      Watch the judge at all times. He or she will tell you what to do and may ask you questions about your goat.

    • 6

      Keep your goat between you and the judge. This positioning allows the judge to see the goat clearly.

    • 7

      Show respect by saying "Yes, Sir" or "Yes, Ma'am."

    • 8

      Shake the judge's hand and say "Thank you" when the judging is complete. You may see the same judge at your next show.

Tips & Warnings

  • In the Showmanship class, you are on show just as much as your goat is.
