See the first bulls jump in the arena at 6.30pm Saturday.
The Civil Construction Hire Bull Ride gives cowboys the opportunity to successfully ride bulls for eight seconds, holding on with one hand to have a qualifying ride. A successful ride can earn a score between 0-100 points. Rodeo clowns support the riders by distracting the bulls once the ride is completed so that the cowboys can safely make it out of the yard.
It takes cowboys years of practice to master bull riding and bucking bulls. The bulls are especially bred and selected for their bucking ability. The bulls for the Civil Construction Hire Bull Ride are provided by the Diamond H Rodeo Company from Yass. The bulls are appropriately named Wipe Out, Rambo, Nek Minute, Red Rat and Buster who has been bull of the year in the Southern Zone, just to name a few.
