Bobby Cox.jpg

In the Quarter Horse racing world, Bobby Cox is a household name. The Fort Worth, Texas, resident has been running—and winning—with quarter horses since the 1970s. Currently an American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) and Texas Horse Racing Hall of Fame member, Cox is adding another feather to his cap with the induction to the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame.

Without Bobby Kerr, the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame we know and love would never be what it is today. Fueled by his love of the western lifestyle, Kerr founded the Hall of Fame with his wife Susan in Hico, Texas, in 1997. In 2001, the museum made its move to the Fort Worth Stockyards, and Kerr passed the reins of leadership to the Hickman family.

Keith Maddox, The Hat King.jpeg

Dubbed “the hat king,” Maddox rodeoed from a young age. Much like his father, Maddox rode everything from bucking bulls and bareback broncs to fresh team roping horses. After graduating from Eastern Oregon University in 1971, Maddox sprang into the western apparel industry, working for companies such as Tem-Tex, Hyer Boots, Tony Lama Boots, and Larry Mahan Boots.

Taylor Sheridan has taken the Western Performance Horse industry by storm with his film making and outside-the-box thinking. The native Texan lives in Weatherford and ranches cattle in Jacksboro.  Recipient of the American Quarter Horse Association Spirit Award and the National Reining Horse Association’s Reiner of the Year Award, it is apparent that Sheridan’s impact is recognized.

Stran Smith.jpeg

Stran & Jennifer Smith are a couple deeply intertwined with rodeo. With 11 NFR qualifications and one Miss Rodeo America title between them, it’s safe to say that they’re well-versed with the rodeo ways. Stran and his wife Jennifer also direct STS Ranchwear, a western wear company known for their outerwear and bags.
