It was a great event this year. Took the family and had great box seats near the chutes.The bulls definately won this one and the rider who won it rode magnificently. What a ride The only ride that got my attention really-a 90 point ride!
All of the FBT superstar riders ate it with the exception of the skinny kid from NM with Red Hair
It was cool seeing Mike White manning a horse and roping bulls!
First a riders picture and then it is all about the bulls. Hope you enjoy the images from Santa Barbara, CA USA 2006.

Great pictures! Thanks for sharing them.
You are welcome Thrash.
BTW-That last Bull image is "Geronimo" ! He was the featured bull at the event.
The kid on the back of that bull-the bull is nicknamed Scratchy because he loves to be scratched and even lets the kids ride him while he feeds. But cinch him up and put a cowboy on him in the chute and he turns to hellfire. And he did!
Also Note: Geronimo likes to be petted and scratched too in the pens-but then turns anti-social when the show begins.
These bulls definately have strong persionalities and know when it is time to buck and when it is time to chill. Interesting behavior.
That said-the Brahman bull with the tall set of horns? He was just plain mean 100% of the time. He would charge anyone coming near his section of the pen-no matter who it was.
