What is the PBR (Professional Bull Riders)?

What Is The PBR?

Professional Bull Riders, Inc. (PBR) is an association that prides itself on including members from all over the global bull riding community.

As of current, it holds more than 600 fully licensed professionals from the USA, Canada, Brazil, and Mexico to all the way to land down under, Australia!

Its foundations were laid all the way back in 1992 by 20 professional bull riders who were experienced veterans of the rodeo circuit. They and wanted to break out and dedicate an association specifically to bull riding.

Bull riding until then used to be considered a subpart of traditional rodeo.

As history shows, from that first initial PBR tour in 1994 to now holding 300 events every year, the audience clearly was demanding such an enterprise and PBR was more than fit to serve it.

With over 11 million USD as prize money and an impressive half a billion viewers tuning in worldwide, PBR is one of the biggest sporting associations in the world. The dramatic increase in viewership annually, from 16.4 million in 2004 to over 100 million in 2008, it’s fair to conclude that PBR is one of the fastest growing sports in America and the world.

All of this could not have been possible without our association of passionate and talented bull riders from the world over, competing in games of valor and fortitude every year for the title of World Champion!

The showdown takes place at the PBR World Finals in Las Vegas where a year’s worth of competing and points scoring all in an effort to take home the grand title finally pays off.
