Carr bulls bring top riders to Silver City

SILVER CITY, N.M. – Sage Kimzey had great success on Pete Carr bucking bulls last season in route to his first Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association bull riding world championship.

“Pete Carr’s got a great set of bucking stock,” said Kimzey, 20, of Strong City, Okla. “It’s awesome what he’s done.”

It’s what the Pete Carr’s Classic Pro Rodeo firm brings with it at the Wild, Wild West Pro Rodeo, set for 8 p.m. Thursday, June 4-Saturday, June 6, at Southwest Horseman’s Park.

What Carr did in 2014 was have one of the greatest bull herds in the stock contracting business, featuring 11 that were selected to buck at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He also had 10 bulls at the 2013 NFR.

Over the last two seasons, Carr had more bulls at the NFR than any other stock contractor in the PRCA. It’s a telling statement, but the benefit falls squarely on the shoulders of the cowboys that ride them for a living.

In fact, the bull riders selected Poker Face as one of the top three bulls of the year. The 8-year-old black-and-white animal has yet to be ridden, including two buckoffs at the NFR.

Take Kimzey. In 2014, he won a share of the Guymon (Okla.) Pioneer Days Rodeo title with a 92-point ride on Lineman, a bull that’s been selected to buck at the NFR each of the last three seasons. In December, the tandem matched up again during the third go-round in Las Vegas. The result was another winning ride.

In all, Kimzey earned more than $22,000 on Lineman, a 7-year-old black-and-white paint. Kimzey was one of numerous cowboys who cashed big paychecks on Pete Carr bulls last season. Reserve world champion Joe Frost of Randlett, Utah, was one of them.

At the NFR, Frost won the first go-round by riding the previously unridden Rattler. That $19,000 payday helped the 22-year-old cowboy kick start a solid run in the City of Lights, where he earned more than $104,000.

“That was pretty special for us to be part of the first go-round wins for both of those great young cowboys,” said Carr, whose firm was recognized as one of the top five stock contracting companies in the PRCA each of the past two seasons. “Joe and Sage are good for rodeo, and I hope we’re matched up with them often.”

The feeling is mutual. The cowboys know when they arrive at a Carr-produced rodeo, they’ll have a chance to ride something phenomenal.

“Pete Carr puts on a great rodeo,” said Kimzey, who also won the event title in Claremore, Okla., last May on another NFR bull, Hermes. “I’m thankful he loves the sport of rodeo so much and wants it to be so great.”

Commission Proclaims Rodeo Week

At their meeting this morning, the Grant County Commission proclaimed the week of May 30th through June 6th, 2015 as the First New Mexico Bank Wild, Wild West Pro Rodeo Week.2015_GrantCounty_Rodeo_ProclamationPictured: Kim Clark, Commissioner Brett Kasten, Marci Brown, Tiffany Brown and Commissioner Ron Hall.


The Wild Wild West Pro Rodeo Committee is looking forward to once again working with Pete Carr’s Classic Pro Rodeo as our stock contractor in 2015, as well as specialty act Cody Sosebee.

Pete Carr’s stock is always top of the line. In 2014, Dirty Jacket was honored as the Bareback Horse of the Year in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. The award is based on a vote of the top bareback riders in the sport, and this is the third time Dirty Jacket has been named one of the top horses in the game – he was the Runner-Up Reserve World Champion Bareback horse in 2012, then finished as the Reserve World Champion in 2013. Also, in 2014 Poker Face was the Reserve Runner Up Bull of the Year.

Pete states, “It is our mission at Carr Pro Rodeo to continue to raise the bar for production and performance in our industry. Out team consists of the very best in the business who share my passion for the sport of rodeo, and we enjoy bringing that experience to rodeo fans everywhere.”  The WWWPR Committee looks forward to working with Pete and his great staff again in 2015. You know when a stock contractor has 27 animals selected to go to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo they are the best of the best.

Cody Sosebee is more than just clown or a barrel man, he is a rock star entertainer as well. He spends hours every day on the internet keeping up with current events and gossip columns to prepare for his time in the arena. “I think people would be surprised at how much preparation I do to be able to reach each individual in the stands. It’s not about just going out there and acting like a clown for a few hours. I have to go in there with as many bullets in my arsenal as possible so that I can connect with whatever crowd is there that night, no matter if they are nine or ninety,” explained Sosebee. As a former bareback contestant Cody knows the rodeo business well and knows how stock contractors like their shows run. He is considered one of the best professional rodeo clowns in the business.
