The bull riding event known as the “The Ultimate Bull Riding Battle” is returning to Idaho Falls, Sandy Downs Arena. This will be the sixth successful edition of the event that attracts thousands of bull riding fans from across the states. To attract more visitors and generate more excitement among the masses the organizers organized a unique event before the main eight-second riding event. The bulls who were younger and not able to bear the ride of a rider, were given a chance to compete in an event where a dummy was placed on their back and were left in the arena to buck off the dummy.

The judges give the score to the young bull who bucks off the dummy in 4 to 5 seconds. These events are an opportunity for the breeders to train and test their bulls. Speaking on the bulls one of the breeders said, “What we’re doing is we’re training our bulls to be calm and we want to see how they perform and see if they’re going to make the next step to getting a rider on him“. This is important for the breeder and these events help them in analyzing the progress of their bulls. The bulls are trained to buck and they either do it or don’t do it. The breeders therefore work on making them calm down and do spin and jump in a manner that they don’t hurt the rider in the future. The main competition is to start after this competition which is the main attraction of the ultimate bull riding battle.
