The first statue of 5 Time World Champion Bronc Rider Billy Etbauer was placed in 2013. A third bronze of 4 Time World Champion Clint Johnson will be placed in 2018. The museum also displays two large bronze statues inside; all statues are created by T.R. Chytka of Belle Fourche. Once complete, this will highlight the top three bronc riders in South Dakota.
