The Cowboy Perspective

Apr 22, 2022

The first guy to ride all 10 bulls at the National Finals Rodeo (The SuperBowl of Rodeo) and almost made it 20 in a row as he rode his first 9 the following year.

Please enjoy this conversation with my friend Jim Sharp. If you know Jim you will know he is quiet about his success and career. I really appreciate him sharing with me and the TCP Nation in this episode.

He is a multiple-time bull riding world champion and a Great hand in the pasture and branding pen.
