The Pacific Coast Junior Bull Riders (PCJBR) based in Norco, California will hold it’s second youth rodeo of the season this Sunday, March 29, 2009 at 2:00 p.m., to be held at “The Howser Ranch” located at 39880 Cactus Valley Road, Hemet, California.
Pacific Coast Junior Bull Riders was formed to help young boys and girls gain an interest in the sport of bull riding, America’s original extreme sport. Kids as young as 3 years old begin on sheep known as the “Mutton Busting” category, then move up to calf riding, steer riding, pee wee bulls, Junior Bulls and Senior Bulls up to the age of 19 years old. Pacific Coast Junior Bull Riders give them the opportunity to develop their bull riding skills, build team sportsmanship and strong character.
The sport of bull riding is gaining more interest due to retired world champion bull rider Ty Murray competing on the hit show “Dancing With The Stars” airing Monday nights at 8 p.m. Pacific time/7p.m. Central on ABC.
The Pacific Coast Junior Bull Riders is part of the National Junior Bull Riders Association and will again send their top contestants to the National Finals Competition held in Shawnee, Oklahoma this November 2009. PCJBR has also been invited back this year to participate in the Youth Bull Riders World Finals held in Fort Worth, Texas, August 5-8, 2009.
Both girls and boys compete for the chance to win belt buckles, prizes and cash. For younger ones the chance to have earned bragging rights with a custom made belt buckle far outweighs cash and prizes. These children know the importance of earning the buckle and show them off with pride knowing the hard work it took to win.
