Bob Logue

Men Contestant

Bull riding is considered the world’s most dangerous sporting event, but in the world of rodeo, no event is more stressful and damaging to the body than bareback riding. Bob Logue won many honors and awards, but being able to spur bareback horses with the best for 21 years might just be his greatest feat.

Born in California, but growing up in Texas, Logue and his brother, Chuck, were a tough combination to beat in the bareback riding for two decades. Together they became the best brother combination in bareback riding history with 20 National Finals Rodeo qualifications between them, a world championship, and three Calgary Stampede championships.

Logue started early, winning championships early with two Lone Star High School Rodeo Association bareback riding titles and an all-around championship, and two steer wrestling titles. The latter being a testament to the heart and try of a cowboy who only stood 5’7″ and weighed in at 155 lbs.

Logue qualified for the NFR nine times in the bareback riding and was in the top 25, an amazing 16 times. His best season was 1982 when he was runner-up to the world title. In 1979 he was also runner-up to the NFR title.

Although he never won a world championship, Logue won plenty of other titles he can be proud of. He was twice the Winston Series champion, twice Copenhagen/Skoal champion, three times Coors Chute Out champion, and four times Dodge Series champion. In 1992 he also won the Calgary Stampede bareback riding crown and the $50,000 that went along with it.

In addition to being one of the toughest bareback riders of his day, Logue was also a crowd favorite. He was named the Coors Fan Favorite Cowboy in 1983 and 1991.

Another area that Logue excelled at during his career was leadership. He served as the National Finals Rodeo Committee Director for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association from 1994 to 1999. He was a member of the PRCA Board of Directors from 1992 to 1997 and a National Event Representative in the PRCA from 1992 to 1997.

Although he lived in Colorado for a while, Bob returned to his hometown of Cumby, and his Texas roots. Always a success on the national level, Logue also enjoyed his share of success in his home state. He was season championships at Mesquite, the bareback riding champion at Houston in 1979, and in 1982 he was the Lone Star Circuit all-around and bareback riding champion.

Logue has also always been generous with his time and in giving back to the sport of rodeo. He has been active as a volunteer in the National High School Rodeo Association, American Junior Rodeo Association, National Little Britches Rodeo Association, and the Lone Star High School Rodeo Association. He has also been active with the Western Wishes Foundation.
