Dirty Jacket

Rodeo Animals

The first time he ever bucked at a PRCA rodeo in 2008 was a precursor for things to come. Dirty Jacket was just 4 years old when Pete Carr put the colt to the test in Guymon, Oklahoma. The bay gelding guided his cowboy to the title and did it again the next three years, five times overall. As he matured, Dirty Jacket grew in stature and in legend. He was just 5 when he performed at the National Finals Rodeo for the first of 12 straight times. He was quickly becoming one of the greatest bucking animals in the sport.

The cowboys voted him as the third-best bareback horse in 2012, the year his half-sister, Deuces Night, won the world championship. A year later, Dirty Jacket was the Reserve Bareback Horse of the Year, and in 2014 and 2015, the explosive example of equine dynamite was twice the PRCA Bareback Horse of the Year. In addition to his dozen trips to the NFR, Dirty Jacket has been named the Texas Circuit horse of the year three times since 2013, twice in bareback riding and once in bronc riding.

For most of his career, Dirty Jacket helped cowboys reach scores of 90 or better most of the time. He’s been prolific at Cheyenne, Fort Worth, San Angelo, Houston and San Antonio, but there’s something about the West Texas town of Pecos. Cowboys have won the title there six times on the electric horse. His personality shined best when the brightest spotlights were on him.

By the legendary sire Night Jacket and born on the Zinser Ranch in Michigan, Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Dirty Jacket has lived up to the reputation befitting the greatest bucking horses in ProRodeo history.
