HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Effie Simpson

Effie Simpson was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on October 27, 1934. She learned to ride horses bareback while growing up on a farm close to Calgary. She started barrel racing in the early 1960’s in Canada. Effie became a driving force in the formation of the Canadian Girls Rodeo Association and the Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo Association. She holds the record for steer undecorating from a rodeo in Hythe, Alberta in 1977. Effie’s regular rodeo events included team roping, goat tying, barrel racing, steer undecorating and ribbon running. Effie has won her share of titles over the years and has qualified for the Senior National Finals Rodeo every year since she joined the Association. She was the Finals Champion in Ribbon Roping in 1994 and 2002. She also won “Cowgirl of the Year” three times with the Canadian Cowgirls Association and a Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo Championship in Ribbon Running. Rodeo has been in Effie’s blood for a long time and she has served rodeo well all over Canada and the United States. Her contributions over the last 20 years to the NSPRA and the CSPRA has earned Effie Simpson a coveted place in the National Senior Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame.
