Happy New Year Everyone!

Good Evening Everyone! It's currently Monday night 8:10 PM MT here in Montana. I took
a couple weeks off from blogging as there wasn't much going on in the rodeo world, and took some of that precious time and spent it with family that I don't get to see that often. With that being said, It's the second week of January and the rodeo / bull riding industry is kicking off on a high note! Shall we get started on the bull riding / rodeo news?

First off, since the PBR just kicked off their 2016 season in Chicago, Illinois this past weekend it makes since to cover their event first! The event was a two day event starting on Jan 9th and ending on Jan 10th, 2016. The first night was full of excitement as so many fans and competitors had the chance to gather up with one another once again and chase their dreams together again.

Saturday Night went a little like this:
