I was still pretty nervous while standing up there giving this speech, but not as bad as I thought I would be. Most likely because it was such a familiar day to day topic for me. I think that I had pretty good eye contact with the audience. I could probably speak slightly louder next time and slow down still somewhat. I know I went over the six minutes and that is what I really need to be careful with. Training a barrel horse has so many details that are all important, it's hard for me not to explain them, and I could have gone on talking longer than I did. So I need to really work on cutting it down to just the basics or pick a more broad topic. But overall I think that I did a little better than my first speech.
