Double R Rodeo Livestock Company | CK REID

2019 Hall of Fame Inductee

CK Reid is a rancher, stock contractor and trick roper from Hill County, Texas. Born into a rodeo family, CK was raised in the saddle and embarked upon his professional trick roping career at age 15, after winning Waco’s regional FFA talent competition. In 1978 he was named Champion Youth Trick and Fancy Roper at Will Roger’s 100th anniversary hosted by Clem McSpadden in Claremore, Ok. 

With Homer, his trained Brahma Bull, CK went on to perform in many events and venues across the country including performances for President Jimmy Carter in the Fort Worth Stockyards and the American Royal in Kansas City, Missouri - the worlds largest livestock show. From 1981 to 1983 CK crisscrossed the US to PRCA and major rodeo events in Iowa, Idaho, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Texas Colorado, New Mexico, Florida, Missouri, Nebraska, and Hawaii.

In 1983, CK was contracted to perform at the Southern Palace show for Six Flags over Texas and was also featured in the musical Oklahoma! starring John Snyder of Dukes of Hazzard fame. CK and Homer were featured on TV shows such as Mr. Peppermint and PM Magazine. That same year, CK was awarded a full scholarship to Southwest Texas University as a part of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association rodeo team. This team went on to win the national championship in 1985. 

After receiving his bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Economics, CK continued with competition in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s Texas Rodeo Association Finals every year from 1986-1992  - with his biggest win coming in Sikeston, Missouri. 

In 1993 CK took over Double R Rodeo Livestock Company from his rodeo hero, his uncle Roland Reid. Established in 1938, it operates today as the longest running rodeo livestock company in Texas – going on its 76th year in business. Under CK’s direction, Double R Rodeo has provided livestock for The Stockyards Champion Rodeo for 21 years. This event is the world’s only year around weekly rodeo show produced by Cross D Productions and Hub Baker. In 2005 CK also took over production of the Billy Bob’s Texas Bull Riding Show, which also runs weekly in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. 

When not in the Fort Worth Stockyards, producing private events or at the cow sale, CK operates his ranch in Maypearl, Texas along with his wife, Ashlee and their three children, Carter, Harris and Sheridan.
