About Bar-T Rodeo Company
The Bar T Rodeo Company was founded in the red rocks of Moab, Utah over 60 years
ago by Pro Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame inductees, D.A. “Swanny” Kerby, his wife Verda,
and their son Rex “Bud” Kerby. Swanny brought the first rodeo to Utah and continued
to produce top quality rodeos all across the western United States. Bud and his
wife Evelyn took the Bar T to the next level making it a Utah state icon and one
of the top rodeo companies in the United States. He built a breeding program that
today is one of the most sought after horse herds in the world.
Bar T Rodeo has been awarded twice with the PRCA’s prestigious Remuda Award in 2005
and 2011. They have won PRCA horse and bull of the year several times most recently
in 2011 Fancy Pants was nominated as best saddle bronc horse of the Wrangler National
Finals Rodeo. They have been awarded many times with the top stock awards for the
Wilderness Circuit. In 2002 they helped to produce the first Olympic Rodeo in Farmington,
Utah. Bar T Rodeo has had stock nominated to attend all of the Wrangler National
Finals Rodeo’s since 1959.
Today the company is owned by Bud and Evelyn’s Daughter Wendie, her husband Jeff
along with their son Cody Flitton. The Flitton’s added to the company’s breeding
program in 1999, they started a bull breeding program, which has produced many award
winning bucking bulls. The Bar T is operated by many of the Kerby and Flitton family
members you will even see fifth generation grandchildren doing their part to help
during their performances.
The Bar T Rodeo family works hard to maintain the high quality bucking horses and
bulls that the company has been known for and generations of cowboys have preferred.
They have a goal to preserve the western heritage and the sport of rodeo. They want
to make sure that for many years to come generations of families have the opportunity
to enjoy top quality professional rodeos.
