Earl Bascom competed in saddle bronc, bareback and bull riding. In 1919, he designed the bucking chute; in 1924, the modern bareback rigging; and in 1922, the modern rodeo bronc saddle.  Earl Bascom and his brother Weldon produced the first evening rodeo held outdoors under electric lights in 1935, and helped shape the sport of rodeo.  Later in life he recorded his experiences in works of art and bronze, becoming the first pro-rodeo cowboy to become a professional cowboy artist and sculptor.
