The Bull Riders – Part V

Making 8

The Complete Story of ‘The Bull Riders’

Well, we have come to the finals of our story about the professional bull rider. I hope you enjoyed it and learned a bit about what makes these guys tick. I would like to thank all the riders who were kind enough to speak with me and entertain my questions. For a complete novice coming to the sport of bull riding, I was surprised at how generous they were with their knowledge. A great group of athletes that could use your support. Here’s some links to get you started.
