all the qualities mentioned above and more Ñ the AQHA realized
this when they awarded Todd the Title of: "Professional
Horseman of the Year" in 2000. Todd
trains horses and riders for Reining and Working Cow Horse
events at Crawford Performance Horses, located in Blanchard,
interested in horses, Todd showed as a youth and attended
Findlay College in Ohio, graduating in the first class of
students to complete B.S. Degrees, at the school established
by legendary horseman:
Dale Wilkinson. Crawford taught at Findlay after finishing
his formal education, then apprenticed with Kyle Quarter
Horses before establishing his own training facilities
in California, over 18 years ago.
Todd and his Students
have won more than three dozen World Champion Titles in three Major
Performance Horse Associations. Todd's most memorable show to date was
AQHA World Championships, where he rode the Champions in the Junior
