The Professional Bull Riders organization, also known as PBR, recently visited Madison Square Garden in New York. Part of PBR’s Built Ford Tough Series, the event saw 35 of the best bull riders in the world competing for a championship prize of more than $100,000.
While much of the spotlight shines on the riders themselves, we wanted to showcase the bulls, or “animal athletes” as they’re referred to by PBR. Each bull rides only once per night. During each ride, the cowboy riding atop the bull aims to stay on for a period of eight seconds. The judges’ score combines the rider’s ability to stay up for eight seconds, along with the performance of the bull during the ride.
