This type of events sponsored by Monster Energy is a very interesting and unique show, because unlike the jaripeo and its derivatives, the Bull Riding is a professional sport. Originally from the United States with roots in Mexico and widely popular in the north of our country, what started as a rodeo show, is now a discipline where athletes must have great courage and skill to ride bulls over 1543 lb during eight seconds to one hand. These bulls belong to the Plummer breed, genetically created exclusively for Bull Riding to achieving the professionalization of this sport.
