Professional Bullfighter and college rodeo coach, Nigel Harvey, took over RodeoChat's SnapChat channel during the 2016 Mega Bucks Bull Riding and it went out with a bang! RodeoChat, ended up being the #1 Social Media site for the event and earned over 3K views and over 200+ new followers. Talk about a great first impression in Arizona! Not to mention, Nigel Harvey also took RodeoChat fans behind the scenes at the Collage National Finals Rodeo in Casper, WY and during his time at the CNFR he asked the RodeoChat Fans what they would like to see videos/pictures of and some of the top requests were Bull Riding, Barrel Racing, and Timed Event pictures/videos. We couldn't thank Nigel Harvey enough for helping RodeoChat branch out into these new markets this summer.  To learn more about Nigel Harvey, and what rodeo he's bullfighting at next please check out his fan page on Facebook here, https://www.facebook.com/nigel.harvey.10?fref=ts
