Bull riding is the pinnacle of the rodeo. An explosive event that captures the riders true strength, balance and not to mention, courage! The riders will climb on top of a 2000lb bull and secure their hand before giving the signal that they’re ready for action. They will need to keep their arm from straightening and their hand from breaking loose before the end of the wild 8-second ride. If they touch the bull or themselves they will receive no score. The total score is made up of equal parts rider technique and animal performance.
