Crawford and Stahl Capture Charlie 1 Horse All-Girl Challenge Crown
Jackie Crawford and Annette Stahl roped four steers in 33.69 seconds to take the $41,000 team victory lap at the Charlie 1 Horse All-Girl Challenge, June 22 in Reno. Crawford, a 17-time Women’s Professional Rodeo Association world titlist who’s the wife of NFR header Charly and mom to baby boy Creed, also placed in the breakaway roping and was awarded the $2,500 bonus as the Charlie 1 Horse AllAround Champion.
“I appreciate these producers so much for the way they leave this roping Open for those of us who take it seriously—it lets us show what we can do when they don’t cap classification numbers,” said Crawford, a No. 6 roper, who lives in Stephenville, Texas. “We’re always struggling to get better, and for producers to allow us to show what happens when good teams get together is great. I realize not all women do this for a living, but how good was this short round to watch?”
Stahl, who’s a No. 7 heeler, and her husband, C.R., call Salt Flat, Texas, home. Stahl’s heel horse Twister took top honors and the Montana Silversmiths heel horse bronze, and Crawford’s head horse, Outlaw, was tops on the heading side.
“I want to thank Ullman-Peterson Events for putting on the best roping we’ve ever had the opportunity to rope at,” said Stahl. “The production was awesome; the prizeline was awesome. I just want to thank my Lord and savior and my family for all their support.”
