Experience the Rodeo with Bull Riding

Bull RidingThe Wild West and the western lifestyle continue to arguably be romanticized by the American people. You may be fascinated by it yourself, and you aspire to embrace the western lifestyle fully. Even if you are already born in a town steeped in western culture, you may still have much more to discover about the western lifestyle.

Face the Bull

Perhaps one of the most iconic components of the western lifestyle is the rodeo, and what better to represent the rodeo than bull riding? Bull riding may be considered as one of the most dangerous sports. People have been injured, and people have died, but people still ride and watch those who ride. It continues to be a popular sport that keeps the audience at the edge of their seats.

Aiming for Recognition

Recently, the sport is trying to grip an even wider audience around the country and even around the world. Professional Bull Riding is striving for wider recognition of the sport. Just like any other often underappreciated sport, PBR seems to try to become as big as the NBA or the NFL, for example.

Practice Bull

Now, you may be interested in riding a bull yourself. You can ride a mechanical bull, which is safer than the actual thing. You can have your cowboy or cowgirl outfit ready, and yeah your way through a good time. You will have to take time to prepare yourself if you want to enjoy a real bull ride, however.

Training and Protection

You first have to practice your riding. Once you think you can hang on for eight seconds — the goal of bull riding — you can pick out your protective gear next. You need a bull riding helmet, a protective vest, and a glove for your riding hand. Other things you need are rosin, chaps, bull rope, boots, and spurs.

Under the supervision of an instructor or an experienced bull herder, you can have a taste of real, terrifying, exhilarating bull riding. Hold on for dear life!
