Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame

The rich history of rodeo and the sport it has evolved into, along with the even richer history of Pecos have provided the impetus for the creation of the Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame by a group of dedicated individuals striving to preserve that history, with the realization that history is more than events: It’s the people.

With an emphasis on inducting those who have competed in the World’s First Rodeo, the West of the Pecos Rodeo, the Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame honors those who have reached the pinnacle of their sport and served as worthy ambassadors to further the sport and sportsmanship of Rodeo. We are currently honoring 49 members and are gearing up for the 2017 Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on June 23rd.

The TRHoF Committee members encourage you to browse the members page, follow the links, read all about us, contact us if you have questions and please don't forget to say "Howdy!".  Follow us on Facebook to keep up-to-date with news about new inductees, induction ceremonies, museum trivia and updates on our move to the “Baggage Area”!
