In discussing this bronze the artist wrote, “Clayton Danks, who I show winning the world championship on Steamboat in Two Champs was high sheriff of Fremont County, the second largest in Wyoming, for sixteen years. He was general manager of a big cow outfit in the badlands – outlaw country south of Baggs, Wyoming – for many years before that, and he was one of the best bronc riders and steer ropers for twenty years starting at the turn of the century. In those days they rode broncs until they stopped bucking.… I want to show that you can’t ‘fit a ride’ like that without finding the horse’s center, and you can’t get in the horse’s center except through your own. You must go into where both centers are one. The moment they become two, you’re in orbit. It is a necessary point to find in this ever-faster world we live in today.”
