Bringing Pro Rodeo’s Best to You Since 1950

Established in 1950 Barnes PRCA Rodeo from Peterson, Iowa continues to be a premier livestock contracting company and member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association.  The longevity of Barnes PRCA Rodeo is captured in the marketplace where community celebrations have been continuous partners dating back 40, 50 and 60 years. The late founder, Bob Barnes, once told a newspaper reporter years ago, "We are to rodeo - what Cadillac is to cars."

Today Marty Barnes owns and manages all aspects of the livestock, rodeo production and breeding program with his eldest son, Westin, and their families.  Barnes PRCA Rodeo will produce over 30 events across the country in 2022. Visit our schedule page for a complete listing. 

The athletic talent of Barnes’ bucking horses, bulls and saddle horses is award-winning. This past December their bucking bulls were selected for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo along with saddle horses.  In November 2021 several bucking horses, saddle horses and bulls were hand picked for the Great Lakes Circuit Finals.  

The 40th anniversary of Crystal Springs being named the 1977 Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year is a celebrated event.  Red Horse Crossin' was honored as the 2016 Great Lakes Circuit Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year.  Last year she became a new mother and in December 2017, she made her fifth consecutive trip to the Wrangler National Finals (WNFR) in Las Vegas for the Super Bowl of Pro Rodeo.  During the 2015 WNFR, she bucked off her riders and was judged the Best Bucking Horse of the performance in Rounds 3 and 8.  The Barnes’ bay mare CAT Power was selected nine consecutive times between 2005-2013 to the WNFR.  The foundation sire Boy Ballou continues to influence the breeding program.  He made five trips to the National Finals Rodeo.

Barnes PRCA Rodeo is in an elite class of PRCA Stock Contractors.  They provided livestock at the very first National Finals Rodeo in 1959.
