Leading cowboys to the winner’s circle is nothing new for Dirty Jacket, a 10-year-old bay gelding that has performed at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo each of the last five years. In 2013, the powerful and athletic horse was named the Reserve World Champion bareback horse.

In fact, Dirty Jacket has been selected as one of the top three bareback horses in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association each of the past two seasons.

Champion is in his third year as a pro and is well on his way to his first qualification to the NFR. He has earned $72,881 this season in the PRCA. But he wasn’t the only Cheyenne champion to have benefitted from a Pete Carr bucking animal.

Bull rider Austin Meier won the Frontier Days title for the first time in his career, posting an 87-point ride Sunday afternoon on Carr’s Line Man, a bull that went to the NFR this past two Decembers. Meier, who placed in the second and third go-rounds, finished with a three-ride cumulative score of 254 points, beating four-time world champion J.W. Harris and two-time NFR qualifier Tyler Smith by two points.

Line Man, a black-and-white spotted bull, also helped Sage Kimzey to a 92-point ride to share the event championship this past May in Guymon, Okla. Meier, a regular on the Professional Bull Riders tour, earned $12,178 in Cheyenne.
