Miss Rodeo Kansas Visits the B&W Trailer Hitches Plant!

  • Katera Harter, the reigning Miss Rodeo Kansas 2014, has a pretty hectic schedule. She expects to attend 30-40 rodeos this year, including nearly all PRCA-sanctioned rodeos in Kansas, as well as rodeo events throughout the country.

    Miss Rodeo Kansas Katera Harter Visits The B&W Trailer Hitch Plant!


    A native of Colby in northwest Kansas and a graduate of Colby High School, Katera will visit a number of Kansas schools and parades throughout the year. She’s also studying Ag Business while on a rodeo scholarship at Colby Community College, where she serves as President of the Collegiate Farm Bureau, Secretary of the Rodeo Club, and member of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association.

    But Katera still found time to visit B&W Trailer Hitches to tour our plant and have our signature Turnoverball gooseneck hitch installed onto her 2013 Dodge RAM 2500 truck. She braved the snowy roads on a 6 hour trip across Kansas to get her Turnoverball installed.  


    Katera is excited to use the Turnoverball hitch because it’s made in her home state of Kansas and B&W is such a big supporter of the rodeo and PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association). She loves how the Turnoverball works, but the hardest is getting the darn trailer lined up so she can lower the coupler onto the gooseneck ball. Of course, soft mud and snow drifts are a hassle, too.

    Katera Harter visits B&W Trailer Hitches for a tour and to have the Turnoverball gooseneck hitch installed on her 2013 Dodge RAM 2500 truck.


    When Katera isn’t towing, she converts her truck to a level bed and hauls anything horse-related, like hay, feed and saddles. She has two horses of her own – a roping horse named Jigs and a barrel horse named Propane. He’s big and gray and actually looks like a propane tank.


    A rodeo queen since she was 12 years old, Katera was crowned Miss Kansas Rodeo 2014 in August at the Dodge City Round Up Rodeo. She won the competition that featured three categories: horsemanship, public speaking and one-on-one questioning from pageant judges. Katera wanted to compete for the crown because she loves the western way of life, from rodeos and running cattle to hunting and fishing with her family.


    We’re thrilled that Katera Harter had time to visit B&W Trailer Hitches, and we hope you’ll join us in supporting Katera all year as Miss Kansas Rodeo 2014!
