Casey Tibbs is celebrated as the cowboy who elevated Rodeo from hard-luck contests of the early 1900s into the multi-million dollar sport it is today.

A documentary of his life has been produced by Justin Koehler from Colorado. The Life of Casey Tibbs documentary will reveal the rags to riches story of Rodeo legend and Western movie star, Casey Tibbs. Casey’s flamboyant lifestyle included plush, purple Cadillacs and flashy cowboy attire. Casey is often credited with elevating Professional Rodeo to National attention, branding him ‘the Babe Ruth of Rodeo.’

The finest historians of Casey Tibbs, Professional Rodeo and Western film will express their opinion on the one who rode above them all. Over 30 interviews were filmed with individualswhose lives and careers were forever altered by "America's most beloved cowboy." Rare rodeo footage, classic movie scenes, and famous photographs of the 1950s will punctuate their personal testaments.  Akin to riding a wild bronc in competition, Casey’s unpredictable life had its grand victories and cheerless crashes.
