NCWHM Podcast: Bill Smith – PRCA Rodeo Champion

Bill Smith, PRCA World Champion Saddle Bronc Rider (1969, 1971, 1973) was honored with the Ben Johnson Memorial Award on September 21, 2012 during the Champions Dinner held annually by the Rodeo Historical Society at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.

Host Don Reeves was able to interview him in the art gallery, in front of his portrait by Wyoming artist James Bama, just prior to his induction ceremony held in the Museum’s spacious Special Events Center. Rodeo Hall of Fame inductee “Cody Bill” recalls the humble Wyoming roots that led to his legendary rodeo career but also remarks on life after professional rodeo as he built a successful career as a horse breeder and trainer.
