CHEYENNE – Behind the bucking chutes and down a small tunnel inside Frontier Park Arena, a fenced-in area serves as a locker room of sorts for roughstock cowboys.

A number of benches are stationed throughout, giving each cowboy ample space to strap on their chaps, tape their arms and gear up for their ride. There’s more to those benches than meets the eye. Past Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo roughstock champions have their names, along with a plaque, engraved on those benches.
