Our Mission

The ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy educates the public about rodeo, its history and impact on Western American culture, and provides recognition to rodeo notables of the past and present and serves as an inspiration for the future.

To bring an appreciation of the American Cowboy and the sport of professional rodeo to the hearts and minds of the public through education, recognition, inspiration and preservation.

Our Vision

The Elite of Professional Rodeo

The colorful history and equally colorful legends of professional rodeo live on at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame. Since the Hall’s opening in 1979, 279 people, 35 animals and 30 rodeo committees have been inducted. More than 100 individuals are nominated each year, but only a few are selected.
