Fitting is the process of grooming cattle.
Showmanship involves a person on the ground leading an animal, wearing a bridle, through a series of maneuvers called a pattern. The animal itself is not judged on its conformation. Rather, the exhibitor is judged on how well he or she exhibits the animal to its best advantage, with additional scoring for the grooming and presentation of both animal and handler.
