Rodeo is truly a sport born in the history of America. It is the heritage of a unique breed of men who brought civilization to the western United States. The American cowboy of the late 1800s gave birth to the original American sport – rodeo.
The ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy was opened in August 1979 as an educational and entertaining museum designed to preserve the legacy of the cowboy contests, the heritage and culture of those original competitions, and the champions of the past, present and future.
The ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of American Cowboy always has something going on honoring the tough men and women of the west. Check out their event page on their website.
