Whiplash The Cowboy Monkey is truly a fan favorite. He is the world’s smallest cowboy, 3-Time Pro Rodeo Entertainer of the Year, and an international star who has been putting smiles on faces for years.  Whiplash is a Capuchin Monkey who has been riding since he was two years old. He travels the country herding wild Barbados sheep at rodeos and other events. Whiplash, dressed in his cowboy hat, silk scarf, chaps and Justin Boots, never misses a chance to show his skills and cowboy spirit as he rides his trusty Border Collie mount, Boogie.

Whiplash has entertained crowds at rodeos, ball games and events all across North America and Europe. He has starred in a series of television advertisements for the fast food chain Taco Johns. He has appeared on numerous commercials, ESPN, Good Morning America and The Today Show.

Long-time PRCA card holder, Kenny Petet of Stephenville, Texas, travels with Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey. “He is really more like part of the family, with his big personality and diva-like charm.” said Petet

 “The rodeo star has his preference, he likes watching TV westerns and playing catch.  His favorite snacks are grapes, Oreos and his bed-time peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He is playful and flirts with the ladies, but is serious about his job. There is nothing he loves more than riding his Border Collie, Boogie.”

Whiplash has his own web site, Facebook page, Whiplash The Cowboy Monkey. He can be followed on Instagram and Twitter @whiplash monkey. He has had over 7 million views on You Tube.
