History Colorado and NWSS explore the history of equine-specific milestones and unforgettable moments at the Stock Show.  From the first official event in 1906, through the rise of professional rodeo and other equestrian events from the 1930s to 2000s, to today's outlook for how equine education, entertainment, and heritage will reconvene in 2022 for the Best 16 days in January, this program will feature a blend of historic photos and videos selected from both the History Colorado collection and the National Western archives - all set to a conversation between famed rodeo announcer, Dr. Lynn Phillips, and National Western Stock Show staff who manage the horse shows, rodeos, and historical archives.
