A bright blue border around the portrait indicates that photo was shot at the same rodeo where the contestant won that buckle, but not neccessarily during that specific buckle event.

If a portrait is not available for the same year as the buckle, a photo has been chosen as close to that year as is currently available.

If we find a portrait with a better match we will post it. Please let us know if you have one that is better quality or more relevant to a given buckle.

If the event involves more than one person, the individual who received this specific buckle is underlined, if known.
