Five Minutes to Midnight

One of the world’s greatest bucking horses, “Five Minutes to Midnight” explodes from the chute as legendary rodeo champion Turk Greenough holds on for dear life. During the years artist Earl Bascom was a professional rodeo cowboy, there were two horses that became the greatest bucking horses in the world: “Midnight” and “Five Minutes to Midnight.” Not long after the horse “Midnight” earned the reputation in the 1920s as the world’s greatest bucking horse, along came another black horse who bucked just as hard. But because he was somewhat smaller, he was called “Five Minutes to Midnight.” This sculpture, done in 1982, depicts rodeo champion Turk Greenough riding “Five Minutes to Midnight” at the Pendleton Roundup in 1939, one of the few times this great horse was ever ridden. Both the rider and horse are honored in the Cowboy Hall of Fame. This sculpture is part of the Hall of Fame collection. Limited Edition of 40
