What the Bullriders are saying about this event?

Jackson Scott (Kamloops); “I only rode there the last two years, but I’ve been there the last probably five years before I even started riding bulls. Been watching it the whole time, and …every single year it gets better and better! The crowd gets more and more excited every year, the atmosphere, and the bulls, and everything just gets so much better. The money is better, the bull riders are better, the bulls are better. Everything about it is just absolutely amazing. …..I’ll never forget this even when I’m older, I’m gonna tell my kids that you know, New Year’s Eve, Bull Riders Canada that’s a bull riding a guy wants to go to and he wants to win.”
