The 2024 Reno Rodeo Hall of Fame class is included below:

Clint Corey — Past PRCA Contestant 

Known not only for his impressive accomplishments but also for his positive attitude, Corey has consistently performed at the highest level throughout his career. Since joining the PRCA in 1984, he has qualified for the Wrangler NFR an impressive 18 times. He won the world bareback riding title in 1991 and the aggregate title at the 2001 Wrangler NFR. His dominance extends beyond the world standings — he won the Columbia River Circuit year-end title an incredible 12 times in a row between 1989–2000. He also claimed the coveted silver spurs at the Reno Rodeo four times. Corey is the only roughstock cowboy to have won the bareback title at the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo three times.

Kristie Peterson — Past WPRA Contestant 

Peterson burst onto the professional rodeo scene in 1989 with her talented horse Bozo. Together, Peterson and Bozo dominated women’s barrel racing, winning four Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) world championships between 1994 to 1998 and ending Charmayne James’ 10-year winning streak. The dynamic duo also won five National Finals Rodeo average titles in a row and placed in 20 consecutive NFR rounds, a record at the time. Peterson also claimed the Reno Rodeo barrel racing title four times. By the time Bozo retired in 2003, Peterson had earned over $1.3 million in career winnings, cementing her status as a rodeo legend.

Bob Feist — Contract Personnel 

A legendary rodeo announcer and team roper, Feist has shaped the sport of rodeo for over 50 years. He joined the Rodeo Cowboys Association in 1968 and founded Ropers Sports News, a leading publication for team ropers. Feist announced rodeos across North America, started the prestigious Bob Feist Invitational Team Roping, and has called the action at major events like the NFR and PBR Finals. Feist was selected as a Reno Rodeo announcer in 1981 and continued until 2004; he also brought the Bob Feist Invitational to Reno in the early 1980s where it remained until he sold it.

Grant Dalen — Past Reno Rodeo Association President 

Dalen made his mark on the Reno Rodeo during his tenure as the event’s president in 1988. He worked alongside David Cox, Bob Beach and Reno Rodeo Hall of Fame member Steve Walther to establish the Reno Rodeo Foundation in 1986, which provided scholarships to rural communities across Nevada. As the nonprofit’s second president in 1988, Grant helped grow the foundation’s scholarship funding to $50,000 that year. His leadership and vision helped shape the rodeo into the beloved institution it is today.

Bob Beach — Past Reno Rodeo Association President 

Beach served as president of the Reno Rodeo Association in 1987 and helped establish the Reno Rodeo Foundation alongside Grant Dalen, David Cox and Steve Walther. For years, Beach had the honor of firing the starting pistol for the popular businessmen’s steer decorating contest. His enduring passion for the rodeo was clear to all who knew him.
