These are the chaps worn by Don Gay between 1972 and 1978 when the famous bull rider was winning four of his eight bull riding world titles.
Gay won four consecutive world championships, 1974-77, the PRCA Season Championship in 1978, and then followed with another three consecutive world championships, 1979-81. Since he won his last world crown in 1984, Gay has held the record with eight bull riding world titles.
Gay was inducted in the inaugural class of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colo., in 1979.
Today, Gay provides color commentary on professional rodeo.
