  • A wonderful rider

    Ty Murray has done so much for the Professional Bull Riding industry. He is one of the best and has won many championships. He truly deserves the nickname "King of the Cowboys." He lives up to his reputation. He is an inspiration for all of the young boys who want to be cowboys when they grow up. He proves to them that this dream really can come true. As a founder of the PBR he did the world a great service. I would never have thought to watch a rodeo, but there is something about the title "PBR" that draws me in. Ty is a wonderful rider and a great person.moreless
