We were fortunate enough to get tickets to the finals of the PBR which is held in Las Vegas every year. The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) is an international professional bull riding organization based in Pueblo, Colorado, USA. The organization began in 1992 through the efforts of 21 professional bull riders, who gathered in a hotel room in Scottsdale, Arizona and each contributed $1000. Since that time, the organization has grown to include two tours (the Built Ford Tough Series and Lucas Oil Touring Pro Division) which collectively stage over 100 events in the United States every year. More than 800 cowboys from the U.S., Canada, Brazil, Australia, and Mexico hold PBR memberships. The season culminates in Las Vegas, where the PBR World Finals are held. In 2008, over 100 million people watched the PBR on television, and over 1.7 million attended a live event.
