COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Bar T Rodeo’s bull Broken Arrow, who has competed at the last four Wrangler National Finals Rodeos, will retire following competing in the 2019 Wrangler NFR in Las Vegas, Dec. 5-14.

“He’s very quick and athletic, and he moves very easy,” Jeff Flitton, the general manager of Bar T Rodeo, said of Broken Arrow. “It’s genetics as well. He goes back to all the right stuff. It’s time (for him to retire). We need him to breed.”

Flitton said the bull was born and raised on the Bar T Rodeo ranch in Chester, Utah, and will turn 10 in the spring. Flitton said Wesley Silcox, Joe Frost and Shane Proctor won Wrangler NFR go-rounds on Broken Arrow.

Broken Arrow, a big, long-legged, black bull with big horns, tips the scale around 1,600 pounds.

“He’s never gotten gentle,” Flitton said. “Back in March of 2016 we were running him to get paperwork to go traveling for the summer and he hooked me and put me in intensive care for about a week. He broke my sternum and six ribs in two places apiece and punctured my lung. I recovered from that and we’re still buddies.”

In the 2019 regular season, Broken Arrow had seven outs with three qualified rides. Dalan Duncan had the highest-scored ride this season aboard Broken Arrow at 88 points to finish second at the Lion’s Dixie Roundup in St. George, Utah, Sept. 21.

On Aug. 26, 2017, Tim Bingham had a 91.5-point ride on Broken Arrow to win the Golden Spike Rodeo in Tremonton, Utah.

“I would rather have him (Broken Arrow) quit on top,” Flitton said. “He’s rideable, and that’s what cowboys like about him.”

During Round 6 of the 2018 Wrangler NFR, Trey Benton III failed to make the whistle on Broken Arrow.
