Floating Horses: The Life of Casey Tibbs


Festival Trailer

The 94-minute film tells the story of Casey Tibbs, a nine-time world champion cowboy
from Mission Ridge, South Dakota, who left home at the age of 13 in 1942 due to his
father’s disdain of rodeo. Over a decade of dominance followed has he brought
national attention to rodeo as the original American sport. Akin to riding a wild bronc
in competition, his unpredictable life had its grand victories and cheerless crashes.
