This time, Gene Baldwin teamed up with cowboy artist Dyrk Godby to deliver two hats that are the ultimate in unique. The result was the Champion Hat Maker award.
One depicts all eight rodeo events burned into the brim’s top side. The other combines burning and paint for a stunning collection of colors of the horse.
Godby, an accomplished rodeo cowboy out of Idaho in his younger days, now lives in Sisters, Oregon where he writes and performs songs and creates magnificent art of all things cowboy using several mediums on leather, canvas, paper, and now fur hats.
