Warvell Family - 2010

Updated: Dec 28, 2020

Trick Riders, Cutting and Racing industry


Jim started on a farm in Darke County, Ohio. He went from riding horses on a farm to riding wild horses in rodeos and Wild West Shows. Jan started on a farm in Indiana. She left the farm and became a well-known Roman rider and trick rider all across the United States. The Warvell family (Jim, Jan and their two daughters Toni and Sonna) performed at Madison Square Garden, the World's Fair in Montreal, a presidential performance and almost all major rodeos in the United States and Wild West Shows in Europe. They owned and trained the horses they used in their specialty acts. Jim and Jan later went on to successfully own and train race horses. The entire family was inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2010.


Jim Warvell passed away on December 27, 2020. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame HERE.
