Cowboy Up

The first round for this weekends event in SC has been posted. Bulls such as Neon Nights, Moody Blues, and Night Life are the veterans to the sport. Their riders will most likely at least know something about them and what they like to do both in and out of the chute. Then there are the younger bulls such as Andy Capp, Night Moves, and Semi-Automatic that will provide their riders with less knowledge, as many will have never even heard of them, leaving the cowboys to wonder what dirty tricks might be thrown their way.

The cowboys themselves also range from seasoned veterans of the sport to young untested rookies looking to establish a permanent spot on the tour. One such young rider is 18 year old
Brian Canter. He is already proving himself to be an exceptional rider. Having competed in all three events so far this year, he has succeeded in placing 11, 13 and tied for 24 and 25. Canter burst onto the scene at the World Finals in October. He has already ridden veteran bulls such as Dixie Chicken, Scardy Cat, and Huskers Red. Huskers Red has only been ridden 8 out of 36 times. Canter has made a really good showing when one considered how many bull riders there are in the world, and that only the 45 very best compete on the Built Ford Tough series.

Do you ride the bulls yourself or merely report on them (or do both)?

Also, any photos to show the blogosphere?



Since you don't have trackback installed or backlinks enabled, I want to let you know that I referenced your site on Blogger Delights. Congrats!

I don't ride bulls. If I had been born a boy there wouldn't be much in this world that could stop me though. I got hooked on rode when I was little and still absolutely love it.

I don't have any photos at the moment. We just bought a new digital camera but the batteries are already totally dead. However, my mother has a blog, Northview Diary, that has lots of photos.
