Congratulations to Living Legend (CCC Oct/Nov 2013) Bob Robinson, who is the twelfth Canadian to be inducted into the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum’s Hall of Fame. The ceremony took place in August in Oklahoma City.

He was inducted in recognition of his many riding accomplishments and for his volunteer work within the rodeo community. He served as president of the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association from 1980–81 and again from 2004–05, and was also president of the Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo Association from 1995–97 and president of the Canadian Rodeo Cowboys Association from 1973–74.

Bob cites starting the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton as one of his biggest accomplishments.

“I think that’s my legacy to this rodeo business,” he commented. “It’s been very successful and everyone has benefited from it and even the Americans can come up here now and ride.”

He was inducted into the Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1997.

Bob and his wife Peggy make their home near Millet, Alta.
