Rodeo - America's original sport - is showcased at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy in Colorado Springs, Colo. The Hall, established in 1979, is located adjacent to the National headquarters of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). It's hard to miss the one and a half life size bronze of Casey Tibbs on Necktie in front of the museum. Rodeo's history from trail drives and ranch work is highlighted in a video presentation offered on the hour and half hour. Contemporary rodeo and the "road to a championship" is presented in a second video. The evolution of gear, equipment and clothing is explained in a guided tour of the Heritage Hall portion of the museum. Exhibits featuring memorabilia from 160+ inductees fill the Hall of Champions - everything from Joe Beaver's first saddle and boots to Descent's silver halters. A touch screen kiosk features highlights from last year's Wrangler National Finals and snips from each world champion. Every January the world champions are on hand to receive those gold buckles and to sign autographs for fans. Take I-25 and exit off 148.
