They turn Sleeptrain Arena (formerly Arco) into a rodeo arena for the Professional Bulling Riding competition.
I need to get a Cowboy hat for these sort of occasions. :)
The opening ceremonies are pretty loud and full of energy!
Here is a rider trying to escape the fury of an angry bull.
The winner this year was a Brazilian. He has won four out of the last five years I believe.
Here is the stampede trying to get out of the arena!
Right after the George
Strait concert at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, I went to the
Professional Bull Riders - Sacramento Invitational. This was my
third year in a row attending this event. As a fan of country
music and the "good old boy" lifestyle, I love going to these
events. There are hot cowgirls, country music, and lots of high
adrenaline entertainment. Surprisingly, there are lots of
Brazilian competitors too. Brazil has a large cattle industry
also, and the winner in 2013 was Brazilian. This can be a pretty
dangerous sport. One year, we saw one of the riders get knocked
out for some time.
