EQUUS - - Eq Tack & Gear -

“We are the only mu­seum in the world that is ded­i­cated just to the sport of pro­fes­sional rodeo,” says di­rec­tor Kent Stur­man of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame. “There are other Western or cow­boy mu­se­ums, but we are the only one that’s 100 per­cent rodeo. Pretty much all of our ex­hibits are themed in equine sports.”

The mu­seum of­fers a num­ber of gal­leries, in­clud­ing Her­itage Hall, with sad­dles, ropes, boots, cloth­ing and other gear that show the evo­lu­tion of rodeo since its roots in the Old West, and the Hall of Cham­pi­ons, which hon­ors top per­form­ers in each event, in­clud­ing no­table horses---such as Gills Bay Boy, bet­ter known as “Scam­per,” the barrel rac­ing horse who won 10 world cham­pi­onships be­tween 1984 and 1993.

In the Out­door Gar­den Ex­hibit, vis­i­tors can meet re­tired buck­ing horses and at­tend Wild West shows and rodeo events at the Priefert Arena be­tween May and Oc­to­ber.
