Why you ask do I want to go to Colorado Springs when I just got back from Denver and the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo? The answer is simple -- the ProRodeo Hall of Fame is in Colorado Springs.
Every year a select few historic rodeo competitors, stock contractors and influentials are elected to the Hall of Fame - last year's honorees include Dan Mortensen, Ted Nuce, Ace Berry, Erv Korkow, Leonard Ward and Walter Arnold.
Needless to say it takes an extreme level of talent to reach the level of greatness it takes to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. More importantly it takes unending determination and perseverance to push through those slumps and keep going in order to make the "big show" - that's slang for the National Finals Rodeo and reach the ranks of the legends of rodeo. Some day my fav, Trevor Brazile, will be in there. I definitely plan to go take the tour then :)
If you're ever in Colorado Springs, please go take the tour and send me some pictures! I hope to make it there soon!
Until next time,
