What is Bull Riding

Bull riding is considered the most dangerous event in rodeo. As with the other rough stock events, the cowboy must stay on the bull for eight seconds to receive a score. He must ride with one hand and the free arm must not touch the animal or himself. Half of the score is for the bull and the other half for the rider. Unlike saddle bronc or bareback, spurring the bull is not required, but extra points might be added if the rider does so – dressing the bull up, as it were. There is no required mark out rule as with the other two events.
