The colorful history and equally colorful legends of professional rodeo live on at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Since the Hall’s opening in 1979, 294 people, 38 animals and 32 rodeo committees have been inducted. More than 100 individuals are nominated each year, but only a few are selected.
