HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Wes Hertzog

Wes was born on December 9, 1951 to Paul and Rosemary Hertzog in Hayden, Colorado. Thatís where he made his last bronc ride on August 21, 2005. He had three sisters, Devona, Sharon and Gail and four brothers, Gary, Bill, Bryan and Tel. He was raised in Maybell, Colorado where at a young age he washed dishes at a restaurant making $8 a week. He decided to get on a calf when he was 13 years old and won $13 that day. Washing dishes went by the wayside and his love of riding calves and later bulls and broncs became his life. Traveling with his brother Bill, also a saddle bronc rider, he became the Rookie of the Year in the PRCA in 1975. In 1976, he broke his neck in an automobile accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down. He was told he would never walk again but two years later, with a lot of heart, he was back on a saddle bronc. Wes was the 1992, 1993 and 1994 NSPRA saddle bronc champion. In 1995, not only did he ride broncs but bulls and did some team roping and became the All-Around Champion. Back on the rodeo trail hard again he became the Saddle Bronc Champion in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004. In the NSPRA he was 5-time Finalís Champion. Wes served as the Saddle Bronc Director for many years for the NSPRA. Wes had twin daughters Rachel and Robyn, a son Evan and his pride and joy was his grandson Thayne Wesley whom was born during the Finals in 2004. He is also survived by his long time, loving companion and traveling partner Terry House and her son J.D.
