However, the animals were always the highlight of fair, where she ended up with many champion animals and trophies in showmanship. The Fair 2013 was Sarah's last year as a junior exhibitor, but she plans to continue exhibiting in the open class as the years go on. She will always remember the memories she made at fair!
