Bareback Riding • Inducted 1994

James Charles Trujillo, born May 10, 1948, began his rodeo career at age 6 in his hometown of Prescott, Ariz. His early prowess resulted in the bareback riding championship of the Arizona Junior Rodeo Association, participation on the Arizona State University rodeo team and the 1968 intercollegiate bareback riding championship. Trujillo joined the PRCA in 1967 and hit the pro circuit full throttle in 1972, eventually qualifying for 12 National Finals Rodeos. Long known as one of rodeo’s most magnetic personalities and a great spokesman for rodeo, Trujillo now combines his love of two sports, rodeo and skiing, in the Cowboy Downhill held every January in Steamboat Springs, Colo. Trujillo believes that success depends on the ability to be realistic about yourself and acknowledge your limitations. He is famous for his realistic and ever-positive attitude and a megawatt smile.
