The Professional Bull Riding Build Ford Tough Series had humble beginnings. It started when some bull riders wanted to break away from the rodeo circuit. They pooled resources and took one of the most exciting and attractive parts of the rodeo on the road.
Month after month these competitive bull riders compete for prizes and the ultimate title at the end of the year where they become that season’s best and toughest. The prizes throughout the year total close to 10 million dollars.
