Bull riding is an extreme sport. Many of the riders have endured serious injuries. Their website, acknowledging that bull riding is the fastest growing sport in the country, states, “This is bull riding, and the first rule is just to stay alive”.

With more than 1,200 international bull riders, they compete in over 300 competitions a year. The ultimate goal is to qualify for the annual PBR World Finals in Las Vegas and win the PBR World Championship.

History of the PBR

With headquarters in Colorado, and originally created in 1992 by 20 bull riders, the PBR explains that they are not a rodeo. There are no barrel races, calf roping, or any other competitions normally associated with a rodeo. Their reason for creating the PBR was to bring bull riding to the next level, as they believe it comprises the most exciting and popular event in any rodeo.
