The Rodeo Industry, and bull riding industry this week had quite a few big events! For many Rodeo and bull riding contestants their summer runs are just now beginning! My favorite, time of the year is the summer run A.K.A Cowboy Christmas! Why?! Might you ask.. Well, because there is bull ridings and rodeos going on every single day of the week! Who doesn't love attending/working/riding in a rodeo every single day of the week? When you grow up in the western lifestyle you eat, sleep, and breathe the western way of life! In my opinion, there is no better way to live then the Western way of life!
Professional Bull Riding - Built Ford Tough Series
This past weekend the PBR BFTS stopped in Colorado Springs! The Colorado Springs event kind of had a festival format. They had Chase Rice, Dave Cowboy Band, and a few other new up and coming country bands perform! They had a 5K race going on for Rider Relief Fund and everyone's favorite drive in diner "Sonic" got involved with the fun as well! In my opinion - I think the festival format for PBR events are great! It helps build up the hype for the bull riding, and people get to learn about and meet the bull riders! Sounds like a good time, right? :)
Anyways.. Here are the winners that walked away with a new shiny PBR BFTS Colorado Springs belt buckle this weekend:
88 Points on a Bull named Rusty
