Pete Knight: Canada's Cowboy King

He was the most accomplished bronc rider of his century, possibly the greatest in history. He was known to millions of spectators from Fort Worth, U.S.A. to London, England, and from Edmonton, Canada to Melbourne, Australia. His friends – and they numbered in the thousands – simply called him ‘Pete.’ When he died from a fatal injury sustained beneath the hooves of a rank, bucking bronc – at a California rodeo on May 23, 1937 – tens of thousands mourned his passing. His funeral received a floral tribute from every provincial government in Canada, and from more than three quarters of the United States of America. Without a doubt, Pete Knight was, indeed, Canada’s ‘Cowboy King.’
