PRCA Xtreme Bullfights

A Dance With Danger: Freestyle Bullfighting involves highly skilled, talented human and bovine athletes partaking in a dangerous battle where control, strength, aggression and courage is displayed.

The bullfight itself is a 60-second competition with a whistle at the mandatory 40-second mark after which the bullfight can be “SOLD.” Bullfighters are judged on and will gain points by how well they maneuver around the bull, working in close with the bull, staying in control, working in both directions and “SELLING” the fight. Bullfighters must maintain control of the barrel if the bull engages it. A bullfighter will lose points by getting run over, run up the fence or not controlling the barrel if engaged. Bullfighters can gain extra points with jumps, barrel hops or walking down the bulls back using the barrel.

Each bullfight is scored 1 to 25 points by each judge on how strong the bullfighter fights and 1 to 25 points on how strong the bull performs. Two “JUDGES,” points total a possible “100.”
