Brian Dixon (Bubba)- born and raised in Hamer Idaho on a family ranch. He currently lives on that ranch with his wife and four kids. Brian helps his father on their cow/calf operation and day helps for multiple ranches in the area. Brian and his wife, Karli, enjoy life on the ranch and raising their children in that atmosphere as well. Their children all help on the ranch and are often found on the feed truck or trailing cows.
Brian was a member of the WSRRA Championship Team in 2013, along with Blake Dixon, Luke Wiggins, and John Ward. Brian is usually the go-to on any team for the Show Horse Event with his horse “Shorty”. If you listen during one of his runs you can usually hear his kids cheering from the stands, “Go Shorty- Go Shorty!”
Shorty is a Draggin Y Cattle Co. horse from Dillon Montana where Brian and Karli worked for a few years. Brian has trained him and made him what he is today and is his all around horse and first pick when competing.
He competes in ranch rodeos all over Idaho and Montana and can normally be found on multiple teams. Brian has qualified for the WSRRA Finals year after year. He loves that it has something for everyone in his family to do over the weekend. His son Parker can be found competing in the dummy roping competitions or the family branding, his wife and daughters love being able to wander the booths and do some shopping. “The WSRRA Finals is a great place to catch up with old friends that you don’t get to see at every rodeo and a great place for competition,” says Brian.
