COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The “Casey Tibbs: America’s Cowboy” exhibit, a collection of memorabilia, clothing, awards and artifacts of the legendary cowboy Casey Tibbs opens April 1 in the ProRodeo Hall of Fame’s 101 Gallery. Tibbs, who won a record six world saddle bronc riding titles, was the first cowboy to transcend the sport and become a household name. His personality and flamboyant style put him on the cover of Life Magazine, while his prowess in the arena made him the living symbol of the Western icon for over a decade. He claimed a total of nine world titles: six in saddle bronc riding, one in bareback riding, and two in the all-around. Tibbs served on every administrative board in the RCA during his era. More than any other individual in Rodeo, Tibbs brought national attention the original American Sport. A statue of Tibbs on the well-known bronc Necktie stands outside the ProRodeo Hall of Fame. The exhibit will be up until September.
