Three-time PRCA Specialty Act of the Year and 2021 Entertainer of the Year, Bobby Kerr 'the Mustang Man' will be performing in Belle Fourche in 2023!
His journey training mustangs started in 2011 in Fort Worth, Texas where he took part in the Mustang Makeover.
“120 days you pick up a wild horse, and then you go compete against everybody else 120 days later, and it paid like 50 grand, and only four months worth of work. And so I tried it. And if you make the finals, you get to do a freestyle, three-and-a-half minute freestyle,” Kerr said.
The secret to his success? Trust.
"It's just a different type of horsemanship, not old school. Like I said, You got to build a relationship. And these wild horses, you know, once you gain their trust and become their buddies, they'll do almost anything for you if you treat them right. And that's basically my as my whole deal," he said.
Kerr and his mustang buddies will show off new moves each night.
“Some horsemanship, lead changes and spins and shooting and the lay down, I got an old car, we'll jump over some fire, jump over the car. I got some dogs, you know, the dog leads me and my horse. And we'll do a little cutting horse routine with the dogs. There's a little something for everybody," Kerr said.
Kerr hopes rodeo-goers will stop by and chat with him after his performances about his mustangs.
