The Riverton Museum announced the completion of a Cowboy Gear exhibit at the Riverton Branch Library.

Riverton Museum curator Karline Schubach partnered with the library to provide historic cowboy gearfor an exhibit to promote Western-themed novels.

"Working with the (library) branch manager Gloria Brodle and library employees Aubry Ellis and Teri Wiblemo was a pleasure and we created a fantastic Western display," Schubach said. "I feel that this is a great partnership."

The Riverton Museum was able to loan out a set of spurs dating back to the 1890s, a pair of cow-hide mittens, a powder horn, a braided-horsehair bridle, branding irons, several samples of various barbed wire and a unique collection of horseshoes.
