STAMPEDE! Bulls, Cowgirls, Cowboys, And CBS Takeover Times Square

Bull riding in Times Square

The Professional Bull Riders series held the penultimate event of their season on Friday afternoon, right in the middle of the tourists and business folk in Times Square.

This was not just an exhibition. It was full-fledged tour event featuring 10 of circuit’s top riders and bulls. It was also the last event of the year, before the World Finals in Las Vegas on October 23.

We got as close as we could without getting kicked in the face and came back with some mud in our eye, and a few pictures.

The “Built Ford Tough Road to Las Vegas” airs this Sunday (Oct. 17) on CBS. Check your local listings.
