Bulls, Bands, & Barrels featuring Sundy Best with Carter Winter

Dates: 
Saturday, February 11, 2017 - 7:00pm to 11:00pm
Event Description: 

The BBB will be in Lexington, KY for one night only on February, 11 2017 at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park. The BBB has taken the rodeo world and turned it upside down with its new entertainment concept. There will be some of the rankest bulls and bull riders in the southeast, as well as some of the fastest equine to ever go around a three barrel pattern. To top it off, Sundy Best and Carter Winter will finish the night off with a bang with some great country music. This will be the one you don't want to miss!!

Bull riding is considered a standard rodeo event for a variety of organizations. The event developed strictly as a contest, as opposed to other standard rodeo events which evolved out of the necessary skills of a working cowboy. Bull riding makes up part of the rodeo's rough stock events.

Barrel racing is one of the most unique events in the rodeo world. While cowboys are riding spinning bulls, cowgirls are charging through the gate in a race against the clock. Barrel racing truly is one of the fastest events in rodeo.

Tickets for adults are $25/adult, and tickets for kids are $12/kid. General seating.
