This year’s stop will be the 7th time the circuit has chosen Fredericksburg as place to hold the event. The competition in Fredericksburg is part of the PBR Touring Pro division, where riders are fighting hard to claim a spot at the World Finals in Las Vegas, Nevada in October. So come on out and see some world class competition along with other festivities.

Suitable for All Ages

The actual riding itself will be located in front of the grandstand and there will be several other activities happening between rides, including fireworks, music, and a honorary video for veterans and first responders. The lineup is suitable for all ages and families are welcome to come on out. For those worried about the safety of the location, the bull chutes will be arranged so that the bulls will be riding outwards towards the grandstand and away from the observers and seating areas.

Mutton Busting!
