Growing up around rodeo and livestock all his life, rodeo has always been a natural fit. At the very young age of 3, Matt started roping and always knew his life would be rodeo. Fighting Bulls walked him into what God's true calling for him would be...being a rodeo clown.
With his quick wit and passion for making people smile and laugh, he has become someone to watch both in and out of the arena.
As a clown and barrelman, he is a great man with a great attitude and high standards for himself and his family. Matt strives to be a great role model for any age. Matt, his wife Stacie and their son Bransen have made their mark as a young family with a long future ahead of them in Pro rodeo and are a great asset to the rodeo industry.
Matt and Stacie would like to thank Maury and Nikki Tate of the "Mo" Betta Rodeo Company for all of the opportunities at the Cody Nite Rodeo. Big thanks to Justin & Ashley Rumford, Kanin Asay, Doug and Dee Mathis, Kade Rogge, Drew and Jon Taylor, and Dusty Tuckness for all of their help and support. Also his mother Peggy Tarr for raising him to follow his dreams and being an inspiration throughout his life.
