PRINCETON — Get ready for heart-pounding, bone breaking action as SEBRA Extreme Bull Riding comes to the 159th Bureau County Fair in Princeton on Aug. 22 at 7 p.m. The event is presented by Prescott Brothers Chrysler, Dodge and Ford. Admission is $10 for age 13 and up, $5 for kids 7-12 and ages 6 and under are free.

This rodeo event will bring some of the nation’s top bull riders competing for a season filled with more than half a million dollars in cash and prizes from coast to coast. More than 500 bull riders compete in SEBRA at more than 450 events each season, and many go on to compete at the PBR finals in January.

“SEBRA Extreme Bull Riding is the largest association of its kind in North America and grows bigger every season with some of the best cowboys and bucking stock,” said SEBRA President Chan Canter. “SEBRA events are family-focused and run by some of the best producers and stock contractors in the business. It’s a thrill-a-minute fun for the whole family.”

Bull riding is considered North America’s most dangerous sport and remains one of its fastest growing sports. It has been more than 14 years since rodeo played the grandstand at the Bureau County Fair.
