Bull Riding

In rodeo's most popular and dangerous event, a cowboy is required to remain aboard a 2,000 pound bucking, spinning, jerking bull for eight seconds to receive a score.

Grasping a bull rope around the bull's chest, a rider maintains body balance "over his hands" by sitting up, arching his back, and using his free hand to counteract the action of the bull. Spurring is not required of a bull rider but can add points to a rider's score.

Leaning back can result in the rider being whipped forward when the bull bucks, throwing him forward toward the bull's head, an undesirable and dangerous place to be.
