COLORADO SPRINGS- The National Western Stock Show in Denver is bringing plenty of rodeo fans to Colorado Springs to check out the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame.

One of their more popular exhibits is the rodeo stock enshrined in the hall. The experts say the superstar animals are truly the backbone of the rodeo.

“They’re amazing animals and it’s bred into them. Their ability and talent that’s passed on from their parents. The rodeo wouldn’t be the exciting, extreme sport that it is without the bucking stock,” Kent Sturman with the Hall of Fame said.

The ashes of popular bull “Bodacious” are part of the hall. He was virtually unrideable. He bucked off 127 of his 135 riders over the years.
