Bullriding-  8 seconds and 2,000 lbs of terror! As dangerous as it is exciting, bull riders require balance, flexibility, quick reflexes and mostly an incredible mental attitude to step onto the back of a bull. Only holding on with one hand onto a rope which wraps around the bull is only half the battle. After the inevitable 'dismount', bullfighters stationed in the arena protect the rider. The cowboy wears a flak jacket and helmet (not required) Score is 50 points for the bull and 50 points for the rider.

Saddlebronc Riding- The classic event of rodeo. Born of cowboys taming wild horses.  The cowboy only holds onto a thick rein (rope) attached to the horse's halter. Every move must be synchronized with the movement of the horse for eight seconds. An outrider follows the action and helps the successful rider transfer to the pick up horse at full gallup. Score is judged 50 points for the horse and 50 points for the rider.

Bareback Riding - Compared to riding a jackhammer with one hand.  This event requires the strongest cowboys in rodeo. The riders hold onto a 'suitcase handle' on a strap on the horse's shoulder with one hand. The cowboy leans back and kicks his knees up to retain balance with the goal being eight seconds of pulling against gravity. The Popeye forearms of rodeo! This event endures the most injuries in rodeo. Score is judged 50 points for the horse and 50 points for the cowboy.

Barrel Racing - One for the ladies of rodeo. Nothing is as mesmerizing as a horse at full gallop. The rider runs a cloverleaf pattern consisting of turns around three barrels (a knocked over barrel is a five second penalty) and then a furious sprint to the finish! Fastest time wins.

Bull Poker - A measure of dollars and sensibility. Has to be seen to be believed. Four 'poker' players are seated in the center of the arena around a card table. Then a 'joker' is dealt-only this joker is a fighting bull. The last player to remain seated wins the dollars-the sensibility is still in question. Players wear flak jackets and helmets.
