Mabel Strickland was a star cowgirl on the grueling rodeo circuit for over 25 years starting in 1916. Known to be as gentle as a dove to her friends and family she was also tough enough to wrangle and pin a 345lb calf to the ground. Her fastest steer-roping time was an impressive 18 seconds. As a trick-riding expert, she could jump her horse over a car – and did. Mabel’s name is still held in high esteem and we’re happy to honor her spirit here at Blue Mabel.
