Mini Bull Riding

Mini Bull Riding

May 25th – 27th



In 2010, Lillie and Cirildo Leal of Lockney, Texas started on a path that would change their lives forever. The Leal’s started a mini bull stock contracting business, supplying mini bulls to local rodeos. Miniature Bull Riders started with a few riders in local rodeos. That first season culminated with the championships in Ogden, Utah. Now known as The MBR, this “vision” grew faster than anyone anticipated. The MBR features junior riders ages 8-11 and senior riders ages 12-14.


MBR soon caught the attention of 2-time PBR World Champion, Chris Shivers. Chris came on board and became a partner in the Leal’s vision. This organization not only promotes the sport of youth bull-riding but promotes the core values that parents strive to instill in their children, such as self-confidence, respect, and most importantly sportsmanship. Today, young bull riders participate and compete all over the U.S. and mini bull riding is one of the fastest growing sports in rodeo.
