Riding is as integral a part of the history of the U.S. as are the cowboys and Indians of the Old West. Over the years, the sport of bull riding as has persevered and thrived and continues to draw millions of viewers from all over the world. At present, the organization that represents this unique sport is the Professional Bull Riders, Inc which is located in Pueblo, Colorado. The organization caters to professional bull riders. The membership is open to riders from all over the world. The 1200 bull riders hailing from countries such Canada, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico, besides the U.S. are an indication of the global appeal of the sport.
The sport has been going on for more than a century but until recently it did not have a proper platform. It took the efforts of 21 professional bull riders in 1992 who pitched in $1000 each and created the organization. Prior to that, bull riding events used to be low scale regional and local competitions with no significant prize money.
Currently, PBR holds three annual tours which comprise the Lucas Oil Touring Pro Division, Built Ford Tough Series and the BlueDEF Velocity Tour. The prize money for the tournaments has also increased with the growing appeal of the sport. The wining purse for a competition in 2008 was $11 million.
