Riders Prepare for the Omaha Bulls

Ready for the Night of the Bulls? The finishing touches were put in place at the CenturyLink Center Friday in preparation for two nights of professional riding.

Work crews piled dirt in advance of the big show and the big bulls made their entrance Friday.

All you need now is for someone to explain the rules of bull riding.

Pro rider Jason Malone said, “You gotta stay on the bull eight seconds. You have to ride with one hand. If you touch him with your free hand you're disqualified. And you have two judges. Each judge can award up to 50 points each for the bull, 50 points for the rider.”

The harder the bull bucks and the better the rider rides combine for the point tally.

You can check out the bull riders Friday and Saturday night at 8.
