2022 Douglas County Fair & Rodeo Princess
Hi Y’all! My name is Clara Griffith; I am excited to serve as the 2022 Douglas County Fair & Rodeo Princess. I am 16 years old and a sophomore at Ponderosa High School. I live with my two amazing parents, and my two awesome younger sisters. My family is very involved in 4-H in Douglas County, as my mom is our Horse leader, and my dad is our Shooting Sports leader. I participate in many different activities, including Skills USA, 4-H, Royalty, my church Worship Group, and also enjoy spending time snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, fixing my 79’ Ford Truck, and generally enjoying rural living in this great County. I take my schooling very seriously and plan on furthering my education by pursuing an engineering degree in college.
I have been a member of 4-H for 9 years, participating in the horse project, market beef, market swine, and shooting sports. In the horse project I have progressed through the four levels of horsemanship in the Western Division, and this past year I won the High Point Buckle in the Western Level 4 Division at State Fair. I just started showing steers last year, and while it is different from showing horses, I have fallen in love with it. This year my steer’s name is Charlie!
My family has 5 horses where we live, but my baby is my horse Crownie. I got him back in 2017 and we have come a long way together. Our favorite thing to do is the cattle classes, specifically Working Ranch Horse. We compete through COVRHA and AQHA and are working towards competing at the AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse World Show in 2023. Crownie has been such a fun horse to figure out, and we have been very successful together. You can find all of us riding at numerous events in Colorado and of course at the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo.
The Douglas County Fair & Rodeo has an extremely fun and action-packed year ahead. I am excited to be an ambassador for my hometown rodeo. There is something for everyone at the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo, from bucking bulls to carnival games, and never a dull moment. Crownie, Charlie and I cannot wait to see you at the 4-H exhibits and local events! See you there!
