Cowboy on a Bronco is recorded in the C. M. Russell Catalogue Raisonné as reference number CR.PC.72.

According to Russell historian Frederic G. Renner, “Men who made a specialty of riding outlaw horses had a language all their own. Such cowboys were bronc busters, twisters, peelers, or bronc stompers, men who scorned to pull leather as their horse bucked, crawfished, came apart, jackknifed, pitched, rainbowed, sunfished, or tried to chin the moon.”
