Craw­ford and Stahl Cap­ture Char­lie 1 Horse All-Girl Chal­lenge Crown

Spin to Win Rodeo - - Raising The Bar -

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.”
