Who is Owen Washburn?

Known as Captain Consistency, Washburn qualified for the PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals 10 times (1994-98, 2000, 2002-05) and won the PBR World Championship in 1996. He was the first man to ride Tony Sharp’s nearly unconquerable bull Hammer, ending a 23-cowboy buck off streak. His pair of 92.5-point rides on the 1,800-pound athlete helped him win $125,210 in one weekend – a record at the time - in 2003. Washburn retired in 2005 and focused his sights on becoming a stock contractor, supplying the PBR and the bull riding world with rank stock. Washburn will be presented with a ring handcrafted of diamonds and gold bearing the PBR logo, his name and 2016, his induction year.

”I am thankful to still be in the game and honored that I would be remembered and thought of today,” said Washburn.
