Alpaca showmanship classes are like other animal shows in that the handler is scored on how well he/she knew and showed the animal.
The obstacle event demonstrates the alpaca’s ability and willingness to accept training and to work with its handler through a variety of obstacles.
The obstacle course had participants leading their alpacas through a set of challenges, including a jump, a see-saw, running to a stop, jumps and weaving through cones just to name a few.
Public Relations is basically an obstacle course with people also used as part of the obstacle.
