A Dirt Kickin' Wicked Good Event
The Great Frontier Bull Riding Company produces Dirt Kickin' Wicked Good Bull Riding events throughout MN. During the two hours of wicked good bull riding we squeeze in hilarious clown skits and kids' events.
Great Frontier Bull Riding Company leases some of the best bucking stock in the state. Kowing what it takes in front of the chutes and in the back pens brings the bull riding event full circle. The show is non-stop with unexpected wrecks between cowboys and bulls...but don't fear, Great Frontier Bull Riding Co. brings two of the best bull fighters to save our cowboys from hang-ups or even worse.
