August 2, 2017 - Shelby County 4-H member, Blake Griffin wins big at the State 4-H horse show. The show was held in Abilene the last week of July. Blake places first in cutting, first in breakaway roping, second in team roping and second in tie down calf roping.
Blake won the high point roper saddle for his efforts. As a result of these outstanding placings, Blake also won four belt buckles, a pair of Anderson Bean boots, and a head stall for his horse. The high point roping saddle has also been won by former Shelby County 4 H members Dakota Klein in 2000 and Blake’s uncle David Griffin in 1982.
In addition to his accomplishments at State, he also placed well at the District Horse Show winning two belt buckles for Senior tie down and team roper. Please help us congratulate Blake on a job well done.
