Professional rodeo action consists of two types of competitions – roughstock events and timed events. Once again, the roughstock events of bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding will have their own fully sanctioned night in the Outdoor Arena on Thursday, August 1 at Bares, Broncs & Bulls – Roughstock at The Rock. In these events, the contestant is scored on both the animal’s performance and their own. To score, the cowboy must stay on the animal while using just one hand to hold on for eight seconds. Combining the thrill of Bareback Riding with nothing more to hang on to than a riggin; rodeo’s classic event, Saddle Bronc Riding, and the most dangerous sport on dirt, Bull Riding, this night will be sure to get your adrenaline running. Watch top ProRodeo athletes “make an ugly face and nod” as they compete for their share of the prize purse for an eight-second ride.
