Jarle turns his experiences with horses, rodeo, and North Dakota rural living into humorous verse. He's been writing cowboy poetry for over 25 years, sharing his stories with friends and family members over trail ride campfires, at various community events, and at cowboy poetry gatherings.

He is also host and producer of Back at the Ranch, a weekly half-hour radio show featuring a mix of western music and cowboy poetry. The program is available as a podcast at http://keyaranch.podomatic.com.

Jarle and his wife, along with an ever-changing number of horses, live north of Dunseith, North Dakota, not far from the Canadian border.
