Bronc riding is a classic event of rodeo, it’s a young man’s sport and Randy Johnson is the last of a dying breed

A lot of this is finesse, if you can get in rhythm with the horse as soon as it gets out of the gate, it’s like sitting in a chair. Just hang on for another jump, another jump and one more jump, you got this.

— Randy Johnson, 805 Authentico & Bronc Rider

Lift and hustle, hang on for just one more try.
