Come on down — it’s the 25th anniversary of the extreme sport — bull riding — at Madison Square Garden, Jan. 5 through 7.
The Professional Bull Riders are bringing their brand of thrilling, high-flying rides and jaw-dropping tricks, and buck for the Monster Energy Buck Off.
The three-day event is the first of four bull riders’ events in 2018 that will offer increased prize money and bonus points to the world’s 35 top bull riders, as well as a unique format that will test the sport’s best.
The action begins with the top-35 bull riders in the world taking on their 2,000-pound bovine opponents atop 750 tons of dirt spread 8 inches deep across to strive to win their share of the $140,000 event purse as well as valuable world standings points that count toward the season’s overall $1 million World Championship title.
Professional Bull Riders, Jan. 5 through 7; 8 pm on Friday; 7:45 pm on Saturday and 1:45 pm on Sunday. Tickets start at $38. For all ages, reservations not required.
