Welcome to Professional Bull Riding…the toughest sport on dirt. The rules are simple. Place a wiry 150-pound cowboy on the back of a hulking, snorting temperamental 2,000 pound bull and see if he can ride the beast for an eternal eight seconds…with one hand strapped to the bull’s massive backside. Professional bull riding is a fierce, rough, and grueling sport with roots deeply imbedded in American culture. It’s America’s original extreme sport. The PBR has evolved into a captivating and adrenaline charged sporting event that features an all star cast of the greatest bull riders and bucking bulls in the world. It will be held from Sept. 9 - 10 at Happy Canyon Arena: 1114 SW. Court Ave. in Pendleton. Times from 8 - 10 p.m. For details, visit www.pbr.com.
