Bonner had split his C-2 vertebra when dismounting the bull at the PBR’s 2016 season opener in Chicago. He was temporarily paralyzed and given 1% chance to walk again. After spinal fusion surgery, water therapy, yoga, cryo, heating the body, freezing the body, and lots of oysters, a miracle food in every sense, Bonner was signed by IMG Models, featured in a Saks Fith Ave campaign, and shot by world-renowned Mario Testino for a feature in V Magazine.
“In different ways, the odds are stacked against anyone dealing with an accident, injury, or illness,” says Bonner. “Physically, I feel good. I’m very thankful for what I’ve overcome, and I hope to inspire and motivate others who have challenges.”
PBR now has 61 million fans and gets TV ratings often only #2 to the NFL.
