CHICO — On Saturday, May 28, cowboys will face off against bucking bulls and broncos at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds.
Riders competed for fame, a gold buckle, and cash belts from California to Florida.
The event was a two-day series hosted by JJJ Bucking Bulls and Rockin M Rodeo Productions.
A total of 15 cowboys arrived at the racetrack to ride a bull or bronco. Nolan Sprain, a Paradise rider, chose to compete against the diverse field.
"I thought this weekend's event was well-organized," Sprain stated. "Riding in front of a hometown crowd of family and friends was a blast."
Alyssa Richebacher was in the VIP stands across the fairgrounds, waiting for her boyfriend, Devin Lake, to participate.
