60 NFR animals heading to Guymon
GUYMON, Okla. - The annual Guymon Pioneer Days Rodeo has long been a showcase of
rodeo's brightest stars.
Of course, Texas County is home to some of the greatest world champions in ProRodeo, where
gold buckle-holders like Billy Etbauer, Robert Etbauer, Tom Reeves, Taos Muncy, Rocky
Patterson and Jhett Johnson have all lived and/or were trained in the art of cowboying for a living.
In all, those men own 14 Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association world championships.
But the cowboys and cowgirls aren't the only elite-caliber athletes making the trek to the
Oklahoma Panhandle. In addition to the hundreds of Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifiers,
Pioneer Days Rodeo annually hosts some of the greatest animal athletes in the business. This
year, those numbers have been upped a notch.
"We will have right at 60 NFR animals performing during the four performances in Guymon next
weekend," said Pete Carr, owner of Carr Pro Rodeo, the primary stock contractor at Pioneer Days
Rodeo. "Over 50 of those are horses; the bulls have a shorter time span as far as bucking, but we
are bringing some of the best young bulls in the country that are just starting to be recognized
In addition to Carr Pro Rodeo, other firms will be Pete Carr's Classic Pro Rodeo (which Carr
purchased recently), Powder River Rodeo Co. and Korkow Rodeos. All are established and elite
contracting companies that provide bucking horses and bulls at rodeos all across the country.
"We've been recognized for years for having some of the best livestock of any rodeo in the
country, and this is a great indication that we're continuing to strive for more every year," said Ken
Stonecipher, the rodeo's production manager. "This just adds to the great rodeo our fans know
they can experience in Guymon." View Press Release
Pete Carr purchases Classic Pro Rodeo
DALLAS – Pete Carr has purchased Classic Pro Rodeo, unhinging the perfect storm that will set
a new standard for stock contractors in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.
With the acquisition, Carr will merge Classic Pro Rodeo with his own Carr Pro Rodeo to create
one of the most powerful livestock firms in the sport. “I look at this as a way for us to better take
care of the rodeo committees and the sport of rodeo in general,” said Carr, who purchased
Classic from Scotty Lovelace. “We’ve been in rodeo all our adult lives, and I think Scotty and I
share a strong passion for building toward the future of the sport.”
Since joining the PRCA, Classic has had livestock perform at each Wrangler National Finals
Rodeo since 1997, and Lovelace was named the 2003 Stock Contractor of the Year. Carr Pro
Rodeo was established in 2005 and quickly has become one of the elite producers in the sport.
Now the company will boast of more than 70 animals that have competed at the Wrangler
National Finals Rodeo. Read More
