Pete Carr Pro Rodeo bucking horse passes away

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s bareback horse 579 Outa Sight suffered a fatal bout of colic April 4 at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

“We saw that she was in distress, so we drove her two hours north to Gainesville last night for surgery,” said Billy Jones, who was overseeing operations for the Carr team while in Florida. “She died as they were preparing her for surgery.”

The mare was 13 years old and had bucked at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo five times in her career. She was also a veteran at the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo, where she was expected to perform at the 2018 NCFR which began April 5 and concluded April 8 in Kissimmee, Fla.

“She’s always been the one to have any time you go to a rodeo,” said bareback rider Caleb Bennett, a six-time NFR qualifier. “You were guaranteed a top-three or -four spot at a rodeo, if not winning the rodeo. She’s the one everyone dreams of getting on.”

Fellow bareback rider Mason Clements, who made his NFR debut in 2017, concurred with Bennett.

“I couldn’t say enough good things about that horse,” said Clements, who won the Four States Fair and Rodeo in Texarkana, Ark., in September on Outa Sight. “I had good luck on her both times I had her; I also did well on her in San Angelo (Texas).

“She gets you to the pay window every time. She is one that will be deeply missed, one that people will talk about for years to come because she was just that good.”

Bennett won a lot of money on the powerful paint, which was sired by the legendary stallion Night Jacket. Carr purchased her as a 2-year-old from Jim Zinser in Michigan after watching the mare buck with a mechanical dummy on her back.

Outa Sight was first selected to perform at the NFR in 2010 at 5 years old. In both rounds she bucked that year, the cowboys placed, highlighted by four-time world champion Kaycee Feild winning the fourth go-round.

“I talked to guys about her this morning (April 5), and they were all dumbfounded,” said Bennett, who has placed on Outa Sight at the NFR, Guymon, Okla.; Lovington, N.M.; Fort Worth; Eagle, Colo., and Kissimmee.

“When you bring her to the RAM Finals, she was in our four round every time because that round features the showiest horses we’ve got. That’s just the caliber she was. She was a phenomenal athlete, and a lot of us are really going to miss her.”
