Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment is a 66-year-old company still privately
owned and operated by the Tarter family and currently operated by the fourth
generation of Tarters. As the largest farm and ranch equipment manufacturer in
the nation, they make over 1000 SKUs across 10 product categories, and ship
product to dealers in all 50 states and Canada.
Tarter has total control of all phases of manufacturing, from raw materials to
final delivery, which means you can order a complete arena custom-designed
exactly the way you need it, and get it right away.
Nine-time NFR roper David Key and 2011 world champion Turtle Powell
are fans of the chute, which has a head gate that opens no matter how much
pressure a steer puts on it, and is easily operated from horseback with faster
cycle times so your practice goes smoothly.
Chutes by Tarter are extremely quiet, and you can order a lead-up alley
that’s longer than most (good for wrapping steers) and a stripping chute with a
reversible swing gate, so you can install it facing either direction.
The best part is that through the end of May, they’re offering a 10 percent
discount on all arena packages. For more information, call or email Roping and
Rodeo Product Manager Dale Sorge at [email protected]

Micro-Rain
Parma Arena Groomer
There’s nothing
worse than roping
in a cloud of dust.
With Micro-Rain,
you not only don’t
have to do it, but
you also don’t
have to fuel up
a cumbersome
water truck or
stay out there
for hours moving
stationery
sprinklers.
The Micro-Rain system is a massive sprinkler on wheels that actually
runs on water power and shuts off automatically when finished. It
travels the length of your arena via a turbine-driven system powered
from any water supply (even from a pond or river) before the same
water moistens your arena.
Deep sand or clods are fine—the cart retracts easily over any
landscape, delivering water evenly from side to side at the speed
you choose. While standard models water arenas up to 190 feet wide
and 450 feet long, you can also customize with higher-speed gearing
options and sprinkler head models that can fit any arena. For instance,
the huge NRS Arena in Decatur, Texas, uses a Micro-Rain unit with an
engine and broader hose to water faster during big events.
Finally, because Micro-Rain was created by a major distributor
of irrigation systems, its components are made by the best
manufacturers in the world and packaged for you in Oklahoma for
speedy delivery.
Most ropers familiar with Micro-Rain wonder how they ever got by
without it.
Located in Parma, Idaho, this company was founded in 1907 as a blacksmith
shop that later began building specialty farm equipment.
Its line of tractor-powered farm equipment skyrocketed in popularity, and it
also produced one of the country’s first sugar beet harvesters. You could say
these guys wrote the book on big-time tractor implements.
While it still markets manure spreaders and irrigation and cultivating
equipment, Parma came out 15 years ago with the Parma Arena Groomer.
Frequently used on horse arenas and racetracks around the country, the tool
prepares the base as well as the top surface. It features vibrating S tines that
can be set to your desired digging depth, followed by a leveling bar that will
shave off high spots and carry dirt to fill holes as you pass over your ground.
At the rear is a roller that conditions the surface and gauges the depth of the
tines to leave a uniform finish on your arena.
Five widths are available, and now you can even order parts online. Feel
free to contact Wade Johnson, the manager of the Arena Groomer Division, or
check the web site for a list of dealers.

Prime Metal Buildings
Prime Metal Buildings and Design is located in the Cowboy
Capital of the World (Stephenville, Texas), so it’s plenty familiar
with the needs of ropers. Owned and operated by the Brown
family since 1997, Prime is the name on the front of many of
the world’s best agricultural buildings, including the NRS facility just outside Decatur, Texas.
There, the arena alone boasts 60,000 square feet (150’ x
400’) and it’s adjoined by 56 stalls, wash racks, a pro shop,
concessions plus meeting and viewing areas—all covered by
one Prime Metal Building.
The company not only manufactures the building frames and
components themselves, but will help you with design from the
first minute of the process through the arena’s evolution.
“We’ve seen too many people waste money on outside design services they didn’t need, resulting in expensive planning
mistakes,” says Austin Brown. “Our experienced team helps
you assess your needs. By understanding your vision, we can
design the building of your dreams.”
Prime creates preliminary drawings to help you visualize
the end result, and they’ll make changes along the way to
ensure you get exactly what you want at a price that few can
beat—whether it’s a pre-engineered bolt-up structure or a
field-fabricated weld-up building.

Arena & Arena Equipment Guide
Kiser Speedmaster
®
Red River Arenas
When you consider buying an arena drag, it pays to order one designed not by
a welding shop, but by the Western industry’s most respected footing gurus. Bob
and Jim Kiser have decades of experience creating perfect ground, which is why
their drags are used and recommended by the AQHA, NRHA and NCHA—and by
guys like Trevor Brazile, Stran Smith and Clinton Anderson.
On many of their drags, ABI has the exclusive “Profile Blade” technology that
slices parallel to the base, which eliminates ridging and the need to cross-drag
your arena. Plus, the new Kiser SpeedMaster—designed specifically for speed
events—is the only three-point arena drag with a hydraulic leveling blade
independently adjustable from the frame (it also features double rows of hydraulic
rippers, grooming rods, a rolling basket to break up clods and a smoothing blade).
When you call, you’re connected to a professional arena maintenance specialist
who knows what questions to ask to ensure you get exactly what you need within
your budget. Financing is also available, and the best part is that you can try a
Kiser SpeedMaster risk-free with ABI Equine’s 30-day money-back guarantee.
Many times, ordering an arena instead of building one means
setting up something that looks temporary or doesn’t match the
good-looking outbuildings at your ranch. Red River has an answer
for that with their brand-new permanent arenas featuring infinity
fencing.
“These pens use wood posts with steel rods and it makes a super
stout, permanent-looking arena,” says owner Justin Kimmel. “It’s
something you’ll want to set up next to a really nice home.”
Red River has long known that the same arena doesn’t fit every
customer, and the company’s clients run the gamut from a husband
and wife who practice on five steers to a guy who might host a round
robin every Sunday and needs to hold 100 steers in the return alley.
The company is happy to customize your team roping arena or calf
roping lane right at their headquarters in Texas using chutes made
of pure galvanized steel and guaranteed for five years. If you’re a
newcomer to the arena market, the Red River web site has your back,
including installation videos and feedback from customers like Ty
Murray and Tyler Magnus.

Solar-Powered Q36 Chute
The folks who brought you the fully automatic roping chute, the manual chute
that has become the official chute of the PRCA—and even a chute that lets you
score a steer without letting the steer out—have innovated again.
The newest edition to Priefert’s collection of roping chutes is the Q36 Solar
Powered Front-Release Chute. It’s a state-of-the-art chute that requires
absolutely no electrical cords or air lines—just sunshine.
The solar panel is attached to the top of the compact release box and uses
the latest patented, high-frequency Pulse technology, while the panel itself is
virtually indestructible and weatherproof.
The system is also equipped with a battery backup in case you get a few days
without enough sunlight to recharge the chute. A single button on the remote
control works the chute’s front gate.
You can get the solar-powered system as part of a package with a new
chute or simply buy it as an upgrade that can be easily installed on any manual
Priefert RC98 roping chute. Then you can do like Priefert says, and “practice like
you compete” with no power needed.
(800) 527-8616, Priefert.com
Priefert Arenas
There’s nothing like having your own arena, but the thought
of building one from scratch can be daunting. The biggest
decision is usually whether to build a permanent pen or use
portable panels. This is where the Priefert experts can help.
Modular arenas are becoming increasingly popular and
offer more advantages sometimes than a permanent pen.
For instance, panels let you expand or modify over time and
can be taken with you if you move. Here are a couple other
incentives: they cost less to maintain, are easier to install and
are not a taxable asset like a permanent arena, so they likely
won’t make your property taxes go up.
What’s more, Priefert panels and gates are made with UV
inhibitors to resist fading in the sun and are powder-coated
with a high-gloss, furniture-quality finish that requires no repainting or rust remediation.
They’re also known for their durability. Vertical stays
are fitted through drilled rails to increase their strength.
Priefert panels and gates are so tough they’re the exclusive
equipment of the PRCA and PBR.
Finally, Priefert is truly a one-stop shop. You can
accessorize your arena with their roping and stripping chutes
and their ArenaMaster groomer, which comes with a blade to
level your boxes and a water tank for dust control.

Reveal 4-N-1
Barrel racers are notoriously pickier about their footing than ropers. It pays to know that
Reveal 4-N-1 is the only arena groomer endorsed by the National Barrel Horse Association.
This groomer is rugged and works hard to make arena preparation and maintenance easier
and less time-consuming. Its front chisel plows are adjusted hydraulically to dig to any depth
up to seven inches deep, while the channel iron beams are positioned at angles to move
material for leveling and allow you to get at those hard-to-reach areas.
The harrow beam can be adjusted hydraulically separate from the chisel plows to a depth
of 2.5 inches, which breaks up and aerates your dirt for cushion. Finally, the roller works in
conjunction with the harrow beam to further pulverize and firm up your ground.
Happily, all of the functions just mentioned can be done at the same time from the comfort
of your tractor seat. And plenty of different sizes are available to fit your needs with a
versatile three-point hitch hookup.
Ground is just made of dirt, but this company will tell you that great footing is made by the
Reveal 4-N-1.

Quicksilver Arenas
There are plenty
of reasons why guys
like Patrick Smith love
Quicksilver Arenas.
The brand is owned by
Metro Gate—a family
owned company founded
in 1982 that today is
large enough to get the
job done (its production
facility covers 10 acres
in Paris, Texas), but still
small enough to care.
The foundation of each arena is heavy-duty panel construction, with
everything galvanized and powder-coated for durability and available in
your choice of colors. Plus, you can expect handy details like lead-ups
with tailstops to keep cattle from backing out.
Quicksilver offers several arena layout options, from 50-by-300 calf
roping lanes to combination sizes and standard 150-by-250 roping pens.
The company also offers horse stalls and roping chutes, including Tee
Woolman’s favorite—the one-button remote-controlled chute that fellow
header Blaine Linaweaver calls the “Cadillac of all roping chutes.”
Monthly specials are also usually available. This summer, you can buy
a roping arena and Quicksilver will throw in a free scoring lane or trailer
panels.

Harrows and discs can’t perfectly groom your arena without moisture. That’s
why the Ground Hog Arena Tool now comes with its own watering system that
works on any size or brand of tractor and any outdoor or indoor arena.
“The watering system component was only introduced last year, but has
exceeded all our expectations,” says Marketing and Sales Manager Tammy
Laakso.
The Ground Hog Arena Tool itself was designed in 1996 by Raymond
Lucas—a father and grandfather of barrel racers who needed consistent,
safe footing. When he looked around at existing groomers, Lucas
discovered that rodeo producers were forced to use multiple tools to get
great footing for different events.
In response, Lucas’ Ground Hog so perfectly grooms an arena for any
event that it’s the preferred tool at the National Finals Rodeo and College
National Finals Rodeo. Lucas’ small family business has expanded into five
different divisions with more than 30 employees.
As for the innovative new watering system, it does more than control
dust in your arena—it helps the Ground Hog penetrate, rework and finish
your arena’s surface. It can be mounted on any Ground
Hog, from the 7’ model to the 12’, and is available
in blue, green and black.

Arena & Arena Equipment Guide
Tarter Horse Stalls
The folks at Tarter Farm & Ranch Equipment thought of everything in manufacturing a new one-of-akind, user-friendly horse stall.
The big innovation is in the feed compartment, which is designed like a “lazy Susan” on the lower
portion of the stall, so you can access it from outside the stall. “No more lifting hay over your head into
the stall or even entering the stall,” says Equine Product Manager Kayla Gooch.
The stall door can be mounted to open from the left or right, and its metal grill is hand-welded to
reduce sharp edges or corners, with small gaps within the grill to prevent hooves from getting caught.
Also, the stall’s rolled tubing on the lumber helps foil cribbers. Finally, the gate locks with just a little
push, so it’s unlikely you’ll ever feel that pit in your stomach when you wonder if you locked it or not.
The innovation doesn’t stop at the stall itself—the feed door and optional Tarter feeder let your horse
eat in a natural feeding position while keeping hay off the ground to save you money. The feeder is also
ventilated to reduce dust and mold, and has a drain hole in the bottom for easy cleaning and disinfecting.

Southwest Equine
Bull Riding
Roping
Safe-T-Lighting
Red Master
Harrow
As summer approaches, roping in the cool
air of the evening takes on a special appeal.
If you’re interested in practicing when it cools
off, shadows and dark spots just won’t cut it.
The guys at Safe-T-Lighting out of Crockett,
Texas, are experts at lighting football and
baseball stadiums.
“We approach our arena lighting like we
do any sports venue,” says co-owner Kirk
Brenner. “We make sure our lighting levels are
fluid so there isn’t much variance. Most of our
arenas are lighted like a baseball outfield.”
Safe-T-Lighting offers a complete package,
including 34-foot galvanized-steel poles
delivered inside Texas. Most 150-by-300-foot
arenas take seven poles and 14 fixtures,
including a pole behind the boxes. For anyone
out of state or installing a permanent arena, they’ll drop-ship the
fixtures and supply the design and technical support, including the
voltage you’ll need and what size wire to run.
Brenner has owned the company with Kevin Holbrook since they
teamed up in 1996. Coincidentally, they got into lighting arenas when
their next-door neighbor, the maker of Outlaw Ropes, wanted his
arena lit.
“People came and roped there and loved the lighting, so other people
started calling us,” says Brenner, who has lit arenas for Speed Williams
and Tyler Magnus, among other pro ropers.
While
several
companies
sell arena
grooming
tools, not many offer
eight different harrows the way Red Master does.
“You don’t have to settle for one tool and hope it will work for
your type of ground,” says owner Floyd Fain, a team roper himself. “We can fit
any need.”
The original Red Master is free-standing, so you don’t have to be a tractor
expert to work your ground efficiently. Plus, it provides leveling action and
offers double-sided tips for longer-lasting tynes. Two other versions let
you choose spring teeth, a leveling float bar, a longer frame length or more
adjustable depth.
Is your arena mostly clay, so it packs quickly? Check out the new T-Rex,
featuring Red Master’s renowned ripper at the front with a paddlewheel and
float pin at the rear for smoothing clods and injecting air into the dirt for
cushion. There’s also the 22-shank Pulverizer that cuts deep to loosen even the
toughest compacted soil.
The Reiner creates ground you can slide in, and the Cutter offers a depth
of up to seven inches. Finally, the Travel Right is specifically for synthetic
footing, and the Mini-Red can be pulled with an ATV. Want more? You can also
order a roller to pack your arena pre-rainstorm and a water tank kit with most
harrows.

Arenas made by Southwest Equine are actually coordinated by people who rope—including the
employees and even the Bartling family who owns the company—and they focus on personal service.
“We’re open seven days a week and we answer our phone from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.,” says Laurie
Bartling. “That’s what we like to provide, good customer service as a family business.”
The folks in Oklahoma think of the little things, too. For instance the lead-up panels are shorter on
the heeler side so it’s easier to wrap steers. And they always have all the items you need in stock, so
most arenas are ready to ship right away.
Professional cowboys are big fans of Southwest Equine arenas, including Travis Tryan, Todd Suhn,
Bobby Harris and recent RodeoHouston champion Justin Davis.
The biggest news from Southwest Equine is that it now offers financing, making a new arena easier
to buy right away. And you’re likely to get a good value anyway, because the company offers package
deals, including return alleys, catch pens and chutes.
Plus, in May, buy a new arena and they’ll throw in a set of travel panels free.
