Coming off the best season of his career where he finished sixth in the 2022 world standings with over $235,000 in season earnings, Stetson Jorgensen is chipping away at the 2023 season with the help of his sponsors like AH Performance Stall Mats!
“This is our second year sponsoring Stetson and his main mount, Mable; and we actually provide all the stall mats he needs while traveling,” said Ashley Heflin, owner of AH Performance Stall Mats. “He wants to make her as comfortable as possible, so we are very thankful that he uses our product. This year, he’s traveling a lot, and he and Mable are doing really great as a team; so we’re excited to see him continue that and hopefully see him in Vegas in December.”
Plans for 2023
The four-time Wrangler NFR qualifier ended up fifth at the Wilderness Circuit Finals Rodeo in November 2022; and so far this year, he’s taken home round money at the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo, Rodeo Houston and the Arcadia All-Florida Championship Rodeo.
“I’m going to keep doing what I’ve been doing the last two years; and that’s keeping a good, sound horse, keeping a great attitude and just going rodeo to rodeo trying to be the fastest time on my steer,” Jorgensen said. “If I do that and make clean runs, there isn’t a reason I won’t make my fifth NFR.”
Competing at American
While he didn’t take the win at the American Rodeo, Jorgensen laid down his first steer in the finals in 3.19 seconds – the fastest steer wrestling run ever made at the prestigious ‘Crown Jewel of Rodeo.’
“I am very blessed to get to run steers in that baseball stadium at The American. It’s such a rush; and the way it was set up this year, it definitely made the hair on the back of your neck stand up,” Jorgensen explained. “I drew a great steer that left sharp, and they weren’t that big, so I knew if I rocked his head and stayed ahead of him that it’d be fast. Mable put me in the right position to put my feet on the ground to make it a 3.1. Just being on that stage is a dream come true right there.”
