2023 Clovis Rodeo Bull Riding Champion

Stetson Dell Wright, 90 points on
Macza Pro Rodeo’s Big River, $9,785

Bull riders, who might not weigh more than 150 lbs., place a flat braided rope around a bull that weighs almost 2,000 lbs. A bull rope is placed around the animal, behind its shoulders. The cowboy wraps the rope around his riding hand with only his grip holding him in place. Flying chaps may help a cowboy score more. The cowboy needs to stay atop the bull for at least eight seconds to score. The ride must look as smooth as possible.

World record:  100 points (1991)
