Darrell Barron
Darrell Barron
Arena Director & Chute Boss
One of the most colorful and recognized men in the rodeo world, Darrell Barron has done it all! During his college days where he was a 2-time qualifier for the College National Finals, Darrell competed in Bareback, Steer Wrestling, Bull Riding, Tie-Down and Team Roping events. He won the CNFR Steer Wrestling Championship in 1975. As a member of the PRCA since 1971, he has competed in Bareback, Steer Wrestling and Team Roping events. He's been a pickup man for some of the best contractors in the business including Harry Vold, Christensen Brothers, and Beutler and Son Rodeo Company. Darrell has won at Cheyenne, Phillipsburg, Sante Fe, and Colorado Springs! He knows rodeo, knows what it takes to compete, and is one of the most well rounded and respected men in the sport.
With that kind of background, it was a natural move for Darrell Barron's expertise to be in demand on the arena floor. For 16 years he served as Arena Director for the College National Finals Rodeo and was Livestock Superintendent and Arena Director for the Texas Circuit Finals for 15 years. From 1976-1987, Darrell was Livestock Superintendant and Riding Event Chute Boss for Cheyenne Frontier Days and has served in the same capacity for other major events across the country.
Darrell Barron has been easily recognizable at the Wrangler National Finals since 1982 where, with his distinctive mustache, hat and high-top cowboy boots, he has directed activities as the Riding Event Chute Boss.
With such a resume, it is no wonder that Darrell Barron serves as Director of the Rodeo Historical Society for the National Cowboy and western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City and in 2010 became Director of the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame in Fort Worth. In 2008, Darrell was honored to be inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame.
When he's not busy with some of the duties above, Darrell enjoys team roping, building spurs, and working with horses with his wife Lee.
What does Darrell have to say about Priefert? "In my 35 years around the rodeo industry, I have worked with a variety of chute equipment manufacturers. However, nothing compares to Priefert bucking chutes when it comes to a secure system that includes safety for both contestants and livestock or functional components and reliability."
We are proud that men like Darrell recognize what we have accomplished and are willing to share their respected opinion with others who may be trying to decide what equipment is best for their rodeo! - Wrangler NFR 2000, 3 Sept 2003 [cached]

Darrell Barron started working at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo before some of its current contestants were even born.

Barron will celebrate his 25th year as the riding event chute boss at the Wrangler NFR this year, a job he said he's been honored to have for so many years.
