PRO RODEO HALL OF FAME
“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.
