Time Capsule Tuesday: Three-Time World Champ Shawn Davis

Shawn Davis' extensive rodeo background earned him the prestigious title of Legend of Rodeo in 2011.
The three-time world champion saddle bronc rider (1965, 67-68) was born Dec. 7, 1940, in Butte, Mont., and has served as the general manager of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo since 1986. He was also a major proponent of moving the NFR from Oklahoma City, Okla., to Las Vegas. Davis served on the PRCA Board of Directors and was president from 1982-85. He also was the rodeo coach at the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls for 29 years, before retiring in 2007. His second gold buckle, won in 1967, is currently on display at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame. Davis broke his back when a bronc fell on him in Thompson Falls, Mont., in 1969 - he was leading the world standings at the time. At least one surgeon predicted Davis would never ride even a gentle horse again, but 13 months later, following intensive, self-motivated physical therapy, he was riding broncs and winning. He returned to the National Finals Rodeo in 1971 and was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in 1979.
