When Marty was in his early grade school years he would walk to his
grandmothers house after school everyday. She would give him a treat
and tell him stories about growing up when the west was still wild. She
rode in a wagon across the largest county in Oklahoma called the Osage
from the Vinita area to meet her husband Dale. Dale worked in the 101
Ranch and Wild West Show performing and training horses.
Marty's grandmother also told him stories about the Pawnee Bill Wild
West Shows and her visits with Will Rogers. One of her favorite sorties
was about the unveiling of the Pioneer Woman in 1930. She said Will had
everyone rolling with laughter when he commented about the Pioneer
Woman having a girdle on the prairie.
After the unveiling of the statue Will and Delia had a picnic together and
she recalls him talking to her about the pickled watermelon that was so
popular. Delia received letters from Will over the years from places he
had visited around the world. One of the letters Marty recalls her reading
was about the Mississippi floods. Delia keep the letters at in her dresser
tied in a blue ribbon Marty recalls.

grandmother McSpadden. Marty
would spend many hours after school
listening to Delia's stories about his
grandfather who was a Wild West
show performer and the times she
spent with her cousin Will Rogers.

Tipton. Since Will Rogers himself Tipton is the only cowboy ever

Give the world the best you have by putting yourself out there and living
life. Don't merely be a spectator. Nothing compares to living life, rather
than merely watching it. Yes, it takes daring and a willingness but its be
so worth it - despite the bumps and scratches and bruises along the way.

His first trick roping rodeo performance was in 1978, at the 101 Ranch Rodeo, when he was 9 years
old, but he started performing at age 5, tap dancing and jazz dancing. By age 8, his “hobo act”
made the top 10 best acts in a national talent contest which is todays version of America Got
Talent. Also while very young he competed by riding bucking ponies in grade school, then
graduating to bulls in high school were he joined the National Rodeo Association. When he was 16
Marty left Texas were he trained under eight-time world champion Donnie Gay. While in Texas he
learned a little about Bull Fighting and went on to be a bullfighter and rodeo clown for Wrangler
company for a few years out of high school. Part of the rodeo clown act required him to be “shot”
in the rear end with a shotgun. At the right moment, Tipton would hit an igniter that would blow
up the seat of his pants. “Sometimes, my shirt would catch on fire and I would have to roll around
a bit, and a lot of the time I got burnt. But it was a great act,” he remembers. It wasn't long before
Marty had the itch for a more direct interactive stage performances so he started perfecting his
trick roping and stage presence skills.
Over the years Marty has performed in everything form professional sports half time shows to
Broadway hit like the Will Rogers Follies and American the Beautiful.
2016 has proved to be on of his best years ever performing for many Fortune 500 companies and
festivals through out the United States.
Fourth-generation Wild West showman Marty Tipton, aka
“The Oklahoma Kid,” carries on the family business with
style. The trick-roping humorist and professional cowboy
has performed thousands of shows across the nation,
adding his own chapter to his storied pedigree with his
sharp wit and astonishing rope spinning skills.
Tipton started training while growing up on the
legendary 101 Ranch in Ponca City Oklahoma, were he
heard stories passed down to him from his great-
grandfather who worked with Buffalo Bill and Geronimo
in the 101 Wild West Shows. His his grandfather
performed in the 1930s for Pawnee Bill Wild West
Shows. In the 1990s Marty's father reopened the Pawnee
Bill Wild West Show in Pawnee Oklahoma were it still
runs today and if that were not enough he even has
relative ties to the legendary Will Rogers by way of his
grandmother McSpadden. One might think spinning
lassos is embedded in Tipton’s DNA.
