A bronze bust of North Platte, Neb., local and ProRodeo Hall of Fame commentator Hadley Barrett was divulged on April 30 at the Wild West Arena in North Platte.
The bust will welcome rodeo fans as they enter the grandstands at the Wild West Arena.
Barrett reported the absolute greatest ProRodeos the country over, including the National Finals Rodeo multiple times and as TV broadcaster for the Finals 22 years. Barrett died March 2, 2017, at 87 years old, under seven days subsequent to declaring the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo.
Barrett began his child in-regulation, Randy Corley, in the rodeo reporting business in North Platte, and the two co-declared a few rodeos, including the Buffalo Bill Rodeo, which Barrett started in 1965 and Corley in 1980.
“Hadley encouraged me,” Corley said. “He never attempted to let me know how to report a rodeo, yet he let me know the alternate routes. He was perhaps the best coach an individual could have. He was so great. There’s not a rodeo that he and I cooperated, that I go today, that I have a genuine void in my heart for what Hadley Barrett was.”
The artist of Barrett’s bronze is Jake Hebbert, who was brought up in the Sandhills of Nebraska, close to Hyannis.
The current year’s Buffalo Bill Rodeo will be held June 15-18 at the Wild West Arena in North Platte, Neb. Exhibitions start at 8 p.m. (CT) daily. Tickets are discounted at NebraskalandDays.com and range in cost from $10 to $23.
