Remember that moment of startling clarity? That all-too-familiar time you learned that it does matter which side of the cone you start on? Or that hoof polish is nearly impossible to remove right before entering the show pen? Whether it was a dose of humility or a valuable learning experience, nearly every competitor today remembers those modest first steps. Share a laugh and look back as top competitors share what they wish they’d known in the beginning.
