19x World Champion Jackie Hobbs-Crawford rode into the first ever Wrangler National Finals Breakaway Roping sitting second in the standings and six months pregnant with her daughter, Journey.
Roping with a cut-off saddle horn, Crawford quickly rose to the top of the leaderboard after Round 1 and continued her winning streak until Round 5 when she turned herself in for an illegal catch, taking herself out of the average and lead in the standings.
After 10 rounds and breakaway’s top cowgirls battling it out in the toughest roping we have ever seen, Crawford claimed the title she had been chasing her whole life, the first-ever Wrangler National Finals Breakaway Roping Champion.
This win marks Crawford’s 20th WPRA world title. “This is one amazing journey that I get to be on, and little Journey gets to be on too,” said Crawford of her win.
