ALWAYS! To me it is always important to do the best possible job, not to say "well , I didn't win because of this person who has ?" I will say "I didn't win (place) because so and so did the better job" And then I study the horses that are winning and the handlers. Then look at what you are doing and your horse. This is where it is sometimes hard to look past the barn blindness.
But always look, study, research, but most important when showing. Conduct yourself as an example to others, whether by helping someone, or just being nice. Actions go further then ribbons!
