NEW YORK — The Professional Bull Riders are in the Big Apple and that means one thing: get ready to see the some of the best cowboys in the world compete on some of the toughest bulls around.

In the season’s first event in Chicago last week, the riders converted almost half the outs into qualified rides.

New York, being the first PBR Major of the season, and featuring a 15/15 Bucking Battle, will showcase a tougher group of bulls.

In honor of PBR‘s 10th anniversary, we attended Friday night’s buck-off at Madison Square Garden to get the full experience.
