After having such a great time at last year's PBR event at Cowboys Stadium, I had circled the bull riding at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo as a must-attend event. There was no surprise to encounter a packed house of over 5,700 fans at Will Rogers Coliseum for the PRCA Extreme Bull Riding presented by PlainsCapital Bank known as "Bulls' Night Out."

The action was fast moving as L.J. Jenkins from Oklahoma was the star of the evening with an aggregate score of 169 after two qualifying rides. Between the bull riding, the entertainment included a "Last Man Sitting" contest as four men sat around a table with a bull rushing it and the winner getting a cash prize. The fans also were treated to the "Pony Express" horse race with teams taking laps around the barreled course and handing off batons similar to a relay race.

Following the rodeo action, the place to be was the Rodeo Roadhouse. The enclosed party area that can hold 550 people had a big gathering as fans escaped the frigid wind to partake in a few adult beverages and a performance by local country music star Jolie Holliday. And I am not going to lie, the amount of beautiful women in tight jeans and cowboy hats was so impressive that I am planning on dropping in as often as possible over the next weeks.

The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo runs through February 4. For further information, you can  follow the event on their Facebook page and Twitter.
