The auction in 2016 saw the auction of the last buckle in the 4th series of the WBHR Collector Buckle Series. 2017 gives us the start of the 5th series starting with the Bareback Rider.
Announcing….. the cowboy featured on the 2017 buckle….
Mr. Glen Dawson!
The Abilene man was a bareback rider and bull rider, winning the American Cowboys Association’s 1953 bull riding championship!
Now he’s immortalized forever on the Abilene rodeo buckle!
(His son Geff Dawson is on the 2009 buckle!)
