Local nonprofit brings bull riding back to Capitol City

By  | 

Laramie, Wyo. - Flying B Bull Riding is a nonprofit organization that aims to bring bull riding back to the Capitol City.

The four week series will begin in March and kids ages 7-18 can participate.

Brannon Bartlett of Flying B Bull Riding said the series gives kids the opportunity to explore bull riding while being involved in community events.

"Our main goal is just to get more youth involvement in the community, gives kids the opportunities to pursue this if they'd like to and just get more community involvement and see things grow with it."

Bartlett's son, Brenson, started riding bulls when he was three years old and says it may not be mainstream, but he loves this sport.

"All kids love playing baseball but this is my baseball. I started off riding when I was three years old and I told dad I started riding and I wanted to finish doing it so we took off with it."
