Rocker G Livestock was started in 1970 by Bud and Katy Gibson with the goal of providing premier rodeo livestock in the State of Hawaii. Now 51 years later, beyond anything we could have imagined, our bulls are bucking in PRCA and PBR events and the stars of Cutter Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram All American Rodeo. The bulls are direct results of a breeding program that went back to our own home bred genetics starting with our bull Rocky, crossing onto the genetics purchased in 1975 from Mr. Bob Barnsby which go back to the great bull Oscar.
Town and Country Stables in Waimanalo, started in 1964, is the headquarters of Rocker G Livestock. Town and Country is also a horse training and boarding stable specializing in reined cow horse with rich bloodlines going back to Doc Bar. The horses are trained by Bud Gibson in the old Spanish style of the snaffle bit, hackamore and finally the bridle. Horses that have gone through the training program have done everything from playing polo, picking up bucking horses, Western Pleasure, team roping, English events and reined cow horse.
There’s an incredible need for a mainland-style rodeo in the state of Hawaii, since Habilitat discontinued producing the event. For most of the 90’s and 2000’s hardcore fans, local families, and the military enjoyed watching the over 100 head of cattle and the top local cowboys competing in the heart-pounding extreme sports of Barrel Racing, Ranch Bronc Riding, Double Mugging, Team Roping, Keiki Barrel Racing, Wahine Steer Undecorating, Cowboy Hula and of course…Bull Riding!
Now in it’s 5th year, producer Dita Holifield, The Queen of Country Music in Hawaii, has stepped up to the plate again alongside Bud and Katy Gibson, owners of New Town and Country Stables in Waimanalo, to bring back the state’s largest and most exciting Rodeo!
On September 20th, 21st, and 22nd, families will enjoy a Petting Zoo, Pony Rides, Food Vendors, Craft Fair, Mechanical Bull Riding, Truck and car displays from Cutter Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and live country music!
Up for grabs…..the coveted belt buckle and the largest winnings of $20,000 in hard cold cash.
Last year’s attendance exceeded 15,000 fans!
