Have you been to the new Ponoka Ag Event Centre? I found out when we were there for a cowhorse show that it’s now home to the Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. They have done a great job of putting together tribute displays for many of their inductees, and I found the old tack, apparel and photos absolutely fascinating. If you are ever driving by, I highly recommend making a stop to check it out this piece of Western heritage.
[this tribute display is Clayton Hines’ – you might remember him from the blog a few weeks ago]
[they even have a chuckwagon display!]
The hours vary a bit, but I think it is open in the winter from 12-5pm, Thursday through Sunday.
[The CPRA Hall of Fame didn’t ask for my endorsement, nor do they know anything about my lil’ blog. I simply wanted to let you all know what a cool collection they’ve put together.]
