The Bar T Rodeo Company was founded in the Red Rocks of Moab, Utah over 60 years ago by Cowboy Hall of famer D.A. Swanny Kerby & his wife Verda Kerby. Swanny Kerby brought some of the early rodeos to Utah and has continued to produce top-quality PRCA rodeos all across the Western United States taking bucking stock to the first National Finals Rodeo in 1959 in Dallas, Texas, and every NFR since. 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 horsemen in the industry. He built a breeding program that today is one of the most sought-after horse herds in the world.

In 2023, Bar T Pro Rodeo & Livestock had a change of ownership and is now Bar T Legacy Pro Rodeo located in Oregon. Stay tuned for more information on the new owners.
