GONZALES, LA (NBC33) — A special event is set for this weekend in Gonzales and it has something exciting for everyone in the family.
It's the professional rough stock bull riding event!
“It’s like the PBR, but it’s got the horses involved,” Cort Scheer, saddle bronc rider, said. “It's got the top quality athletes in the world, in the bareback riding and the bronc riding that you see on TV at the NFR wrangler national finals every year.
It's different than your regular rodeo show, because these cowboys bring their own bucking broncos. They come from all over the world, and the best-of-the-best compete in the battle on the bayou.
"You see the best of the best, and then the top guys come back and the final four horses, they are the real deal and the suckers are meant to buck," Bump Postlethwait, bull rider, said.
The event will be held at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center on Saturday, April 13. It starts at seven, and you can get your tickets at the door.
