Two years ago we took a road trip with the Penas to the PBR in Vegas. One thing hasn't changed, I love PBR's! When Andrew inquired about Christmas giving, I said I was more interested in experiences prior to these babies debut than any tangible thing. So here's to the PBR at Madison Square Garden.
Introduction of top 40 riders in world.
The top rider gets a spot light on the podium behind the chutes.
Andrew's parents actually made the event possible through their family friend that works for the PBR association. So fun having the Egan's there too. Takes another southern girl to appreciate this type of event. And Emma Perry was a total rockstar--not a peep despite the loudness.
Had a bull malfuction there on the bottom right. I think this rider got a re-ride as a result.
I love observing what goes on behind the chutes. It's amazing to watch the bull temperament prior and what the bull riders routine includes.
Half time entertainment equivalent was jousting. Pretty intense...
It's a weekend event. On Saturday Kimber and the Hadleys were there as well.
I think the bull industry is fascinating. I'm not obnoxious about it, but I deep down root for the bull. I just want a good ride. That come with a good bull. I love the hype on various bulls that have only been ridden for a full 8 seconds once before or even just a couple times. For example, Bushwacker. He is out for a couple months due to a minor surgery on his back legs though so maybe next year we'll see him.
