CALLING ALL YOU
Bull Party is ready to take you adrenaline junkies for the ride of your life! Imagine. The taut muscles of a powerful bull. The rough braid of the rope in your palm. The still silence.

Seconds that feel like hours as you hang on in the most difficult competition of your life.
At Bull Party, we’ve planned the ideal first-timer bull ride. Our coaches help guide you through the basics as we equip you with the skills to test your mettle in the arena against a 1,500 pound bull. Bull riding is our world and our way of life. Bull Party is the result of our passion to educate the public and expand the sport. Sign up for one of our quarterly events and try to ride a bull for the full 8 seconds. Come live out your dreams.

I’m at a loss for words… My first experience was life changing! It became a part of my life. I was 19, fearless, and ready to hit the road. Bull riding becomes something you eat, sleep, and breath. It’s not for the weak minded. I am forever a different kind of man!Ian Mather
It’s hard to put into words, the feeling you get when you climb onto a 1500 lbs, pissed off bull… Terrified, excited, happy, it’s an adrenaline rush like no other. There is a strange peacefulness when you settle in on the back of the bull. Just before you nod your head, you pray you can hold on and stay safe. It’s just you and this amazing animal. It’s so pure and natural, man versus beast. It is truly a feeling like no other.Mike Franklin
Riding a bull for the first time was the biggest adrenaline rush I have ever felt. Followed by an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment and self confidence.Josh Fleck
We flew into Dubois, WY with dust on our tails. I jumped on the back of the bull and as soon as I nodded and the chute opened, I heard Cody yelling “Bear Down!”… Just a few seconds was a life changing experience and can’t wait for my next ride.Ty Werges
The first time I went to a rodeo I knew I wanted to test myself in the arena. Cody and the Bull Party crew made it happen. There is no feeling or adrenaline rush like stepping onto a bull. I really appreciated the attention and training I got from these guys, an unforgettable experience.Nick Haggerty
