CBR Announces New Relationship with United Bucking Bulls, Inc

Fort Worth, Texas(May 31, 2011) – Championship Bull Riding Inc. is excited to announce its new relationship with the United Bucking Bulls, Inc (UBBI).  The UBBI was organized to give bucking bull breeders new opportunities to compete with their bulls at consistent and fair competitions and earn money toward qualifying for the UBBI National Finals in October.  The UBBI will host CBR Horizon Series events at 5 of their 2011 scheduled competitions, including Winnie, Texas in June, July, August and September and Abilene, Texas in August.  These new CBR Horizon Series stops will feature $5000 in added money and become part of the CBR World Championship race in 2011. In addition to the normal prize purse at these events, as an incentive to the CBR bull riders, a $500 bonus will be awarded to the contestant who ultimately gets on the rankest bull in each performance, regardless of a qualified ride. 


The UBBI will also now host the CBR Horizon Series Finals & Don Gay Tour Finals in conjunction with its UBBI National Finals on October 13th – 15th.  The Finals will include 3 go-rounds of competition and will add $40,000 in prize money.  The Finals Champion will win a new Dodge Ram pick-up from Truckville and Sourlake Motors.


“CBR is very excited about our new affiliation with the UBBI”, stated Wes Bruce, CEO of CBR.  “The addition of these events and a combined Horizon Series and Don Gay Tour Finals offers our CBR riders more opportunities to get on great bucking bulls and accumulate points in the race for the CBR World Championship and the $100,000 in bonus money, not to mention a great Finals with $40,000 and a new Ram Truck up for grabs. The UBBI is a fast growing organization dedicated to providing opportunities without limitations to its members, which is exactly the mission of CBR coincidently. We are looking forward to a strong and mutually beneficial relationship with the UBBI”.  


The UBBI will sanction almost 40 events across the country in 2011 and has already paid out over $450,000 in prize money this season.  “This is a perfect combination of great bull riders and great bulls,” shared Randy Schmutz, General Manager of the UBBI.  “The combined talents of the CBR riders and UBBI bulls will benefit both organizations.  It’s an exciting time for our industry and we’re very happy about moving forward with this new relationship with the CBR!”


The first UBBI / CBR event will be in Winnie, Texas on June 17th & 18th.  To learn more about Championship Bull Riding OR United Bucking Bulls, Inc log onto  OR
