2021 Douglas County Fair & Rodeo Princess
Hey there! My name is Samantha Witt; I am honored and excited to serve as the 2021 Douglas County Fair & Rodeo Princess. I am 17 years old and a junior at Castle View High School. I live with my parents Max and Becky Witt, along with my little brother Max and we live in Castle Rock with my three dogs and two cats. When my family and I have free time, besides riding horses, you can find us in the mountains riding dirt bikes on the trails. My dad, brother and I also like to archery and rifle hunt for big game in our beautiful mountains. I would like to thank my family for helping me pursue my passion for livestock as well as my passion for the outdoors. Their support is endless!
I have been a member of 4-H for 8 years, participating in horses, market sheep, rabbits, and market beef. In the horse project I have won Grand Champion english in my age group, Reserve Champion gymkhana and Grand Champion western pleasure. I also have shown market beef since 2017, this year my steer’s name is Berry. My favorite part of 4-H has been the leadership activities in my club where I have served as treasurer, Vice President, President and parliamentary.
My three horses are Fritz, a 10-year-old red dun quarter horse, Pi a 4-year-old chestnut quarter horse and Blue a 20-year-old palomino quarter horse. We participate in shows and events outside of 4-H, such as the Douglas County Buckle Series, where I won Grand Champion in 2018. We also show Parker Trail Riders and some open Reining and Working Ranch Horse Shows. Fritz is my rope horse, in team roping and break away. My other horse Blue is my speed event horse; he has placed me in several gymkhana events over the years. Pi is just a baby but she won me 2020 Grand Champion western pleasure. 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, hoping COVID-19 won’t stand in our way. 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. Fritz, Blue, Pi and I cannot wait to see you at the 4-H exhibits and local events! See you there!
