Their Son Bud Kerby and his wife Evelyn took the Bar T to the next level making it a state icon and one of the top rodeo companies in the United States. Bud, a saddle bronc rider and pick up man, was highly respected as one of the best bucking horse men in the industry. He built a breeding program that today is one of the most sought after horse herds in the world.

In 2002 Bar T Rodeo helped produce the first Olympic Rodeo in Farmington, Utah.12 years ago Bud and Evelyn’s daughter Wendie and her husband Jeff Flitton started a Bull breeding program.

Dusty Barrett – dustybarrett.com
Born March 12, 1970 in Sauquoit, New York.
Dusty is the oldest grandson of the long time rodeo clown and entertainer Dick “Old Man” Barrett. With this heritage, Dusty could not help but begin his rodeo career at a very young age. As soon as he was old enough to walk, Dusty began shadowing his grandfather in the rodeo arena. Traveling up and down the east coast, Dusty helped “Old Man” tell jokes and perform acts.
As a teenager Dusty began riding all three rough stock events (Bareback, Saddle Broncs, and Bull Riding). During this time he stayed true to his roots and continued to clown rodeos during any spare moments that he had.
In 1998 Dusty won the PRCA First Frontier Circuit Saddle Bronc Riding Year End Championship adding this to his many other accomplishments. With this championship he retired from competition to concentrate on clowning full time.
In 1999, Dusty married his longtime partner Jennifer. Together they began training horses as well as creating specialty acts for Dusty to take on the road for entertaining. In 2004 He was proudly accepted into the PRCA.
Now with Dusty’s animal acts such as his Roman Riding Ponies, Trick Riding Pony, and “Squirt Gun” the trick pony, he is one of the up and coming great specialty performers in Rodeo today.
