chris call : America needs more of this, and less Kardashians.

Gods M3dic : I never question the first person who thought it would be a good idea to get on a bull and ride it. I always questioned the 2nd person who decided to do it next lol

1banana2kiwis : I'd rather be a cowboy than just a bull rider any day.... says the worlds best known bull rider. Very cool.

Jd Haas : I rode bulls back in the late 70s into the mid 80s. I was a pretty good bull rider for high school and open rodeos. Never went pro, but I can testify that there is no greater rush than tying onto a bull and nodding your head! You have no idea what’s going to happen next. I’ve recently started watching rodeos and PBR again and I will tell you that this guy JB Mauney is a man I’d love to meet. He’s a true “COWBOY” and possibly the best bull rider I’ve ever seen! My hats off to you JB. You seem to have life figured out and I can’t believe some of the bulls you’ve ridden. You’re a hell of a hand and all around good man. You’ve inspired my heart. I salute you and your life inspirations. Best of luck in life.
