6 time National Finals Steer Roper JR Olson knows how to make a good horse to win on. His vast accolades in the rodeo arena include finishing 4th in the "Iron Man" Timed Event Championship, 10 Qualifications to the Mountain States Pro Rodeo Circuit Finals with multiple average and year-end titles, Wrangler Team Roping Championship average champion, 2x Don King Days champion and 6 qualification to the National Finals Steers Roping with an average title in 2006. Most impressive, nearly all his accomplishments have been made on horses he trained himself.
JR has poured everything he has learned over his decades of training into the horses he now offers under the banner of JR Olson Performance Horses. Recognizing that roping events can be high impact on a horse, both mentally and physically, he starts with quiet and gentle horses with good bone and size for longevity in the arena. One-owner ranch horses with a solid foundation and work ethic are prime prospects to create the kind of confident, long lasting horses JR is known for.
Specializing in rope horses for all levels of ropers and fitting the right horse to the right person, Olson Performance Horses trains and offers a variety of high quality performance and ranch horses to meet the needs of today's horseman.
