Bull Riding RFD-TV The American Pro Rodeo Trail

Welcome everyone! This week, there is a whole lot of bull riding and rodeo action going on. First off, the event that everyone is talking about this week is The American that will be taking placeMarch 1st in Arlington, Texas at the AT&T Stadium! Let's go into more detail about some of the events going on this week. Shall we?

Word on the street is that RFD-TV The American is next week March 1st! But, you see.. The trail to get too that $2 million dollar rodeo wasn't easy! You had to go through a series of qualifiers, and the guy OR gal that won that qualifier had to compete at The American Semi-Finals in Fort Worth, Texas! Not to mention, if you made it to the NFR or PBR Finals and made it into the TOP 10.. Then you automatically advance on to The American.

Let's talk about some bull riding! The PBR Built Ford Tough Series stopped in Kansas City, MO and boy did the bull riders work their tails off! There were A LOT of rank bulls this weekend in Kansas City, Mo such as a bull named "Brutus" that H&D Cattle own. H&D Cattle Co., brought a new bull onto the scene this weekend by the name of, Crystal Can Do! Here's a video of Crystal Can Do showing the folks what work in the arena looks like (VIDEO CREDIT PBR) :

By the way, the bull rider on Crystal Can Do is J.W. Harris.
J.W. Harris rode Crystal Can Do all the way to the buzzer for a total of 88.50 points and sealed the deal with a nice check and gold buckle! Pretty nifty, right?!
