A rodeo bull is a rodeo animal that has been trained to buck, plunge, and spin in response to commands from rodeo riders. A rodeo bull can be used for any rodeo event where bulls are ridden: calf roping, steer wrestling, team roping, or saddle bronc riding.
These animals provide the excitement of a live rodeo. They can be hired for events outside Australia by companies such as Bull Hire. But before you hire one, here are 3 things you need to know about rodeo bulls.
1) What do they look like? They come in all shapes and sizes, with some being more agile than others depending on their breed type (such as Angus or Brahman). Rodeo bulls are always males, and they grow to around 600-700kg.
2) Who rode them? Bull riders can be recognized by their spurs, chaps, and gloves. These are used to steer the rodeo bull in different directions or control its speed during a ride.
3) Bulls deserve respect: not just for being courageous animals but also because you could get hurt if they kick out! You should always stand at least one rodeo bull length away from them.
Never approach a rodeo bull from the front, and never use your hands to touch it or mount it. Leave that to the professionals.
