Under the direction of owners, Shawn and Casey Varpness, SC Productions barrel racing events is where an old time rodeo event that has been around since the late 1940s, is partnered with a little bit of Hollywood glam. Mixing rock ‘n’ roll music and barrel racing together with a touch of class. Established in 2009, SC Productions events are full of fast action and attention to detail. With the motto of “Expect the Unexpected”, the focus of every production is to make sure that every person who attends, no matter what level rider they are, has a good time. They take every element of barrel racing into consideration from sponsorships, added money, awards, ground, to public relations, working with contestants to give them the best possible event they ever attended.
Growing up barrel racing, Shawn & Casey have been around this industry all of their lives. That background is complemented by their love for competition and experience in the barrel racing arena. They both started out barrel racing at a very young age competing at local horse shows, 4-H shows & WSCA Events. Shawn also trained and showed reining horses and Casey spent a few years in the team roping arena. Later in life, they both moved on to training colts and competing in barrel racing futurity events all over the Midwest and Canada. These two futurity trainers met at a futurity competing against each other. As competitors, they understand what it takes for today’s barrel racer to go down the road and are always looking for ways to make their events better and more profitable for contestants. Their years of touring barrel racing events and background give them the knowledge and desire to always seek out better ideas to keep the competition more even and fair for every contestant. All these experiences have contributed to SC Productions success and are setting a path for the future.
