A message from the President
On behalf of the Calgary Stampede I would like to congratulate the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame
and Ken Danby on the creationof the Trail 2000 limited edition, commemorative art prints.
The Calgary Stampede is very proud to be a part of such a unique project that combines the talents of an
internationally renowned artist
with the backdrop of this historic adventure. Trail 2000 recreates a historic
horse drive retracing a classic, tradition-worn trail that entrusts riders with the responsibility of delivering
the most famous bucking stock in the world to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. Ken's involvement
in this project utilizes his award winning talent and creativity to showcase the horse drive to its fullest
as well ascreate a lasting legacy for years to come.

The artist's comments
'Trail 2000' was an exciting event that I was thrilled to respond to with my work. My challenge in creating
this image involved combining the high drama and action of range-running horses with the grandeur
of the Alberta ranchlands. And I'm delighted to have participated in a project that simultaneously benefits
so many worthy groups the Calgary Stampede, the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame,
the Rotary Clubs of Calgary and the many people of Calgary who support their admirable endeavours.
