Lil Bullrider Dude

The husband has been asked to help a young bullrider. His parents said if he was going to ride bulls, then he needs to know what he is doing. What smart parents! So the husband was called. I have said in the past that I think he does a great job teaching plus he really enjoys it. The husband went over to their house last week to meet the parents and the lil bullrider. Turns out he is only 10 years old! The husband wasn't expecting that. He's never worked with someone that young.

The husband called around to some local contractors to see if anyone had any steers or small bulls. One guy said he had a few small bulls he thought would be okay for the lil bullrider. So Sunday afternoon, the husband got to see the lil bullrider dude in action.


The husband pullin' lil bullrider dude's rope. Tellin' him the ins and outs of being in the chute. Then he knodded his head, out he came!












He actually rode and tried much harder than the older guys that had gotten on that day. He sure doesn't give up. The husband would yell at him to LET GO both times he rode! I'll keep ya updated on his progress.

That was really awesome!!..he looked like he has the will so maybe with the husband's help he'll gain the skill. Reminds me of when my boys ..(we had the buckin' barrel hooked up out back) tried their hand at being "Lil bullriding Dudes!" They told us later how they'd sneak and try to ride a friend's bull when he had him penned...with my boys ...I got used to being nervous. I'll be rooting for ya...."Lil Buckriding Dude"!
