Highlights of the Del Mar Invitational

Tough Cowboys, Tougher Bulls

  • Bull Teeter-Totter
    35 Tough Riders Meet 35 Fearless Bulls

    This is not a rodeo. We don’t rope calves, and we don’t chase barrels.

    This is Bull Riding, and the first rule is just to stay alive! Professional Bull Riding is a fierce, rough and grueling sport with roots deeply imbedded in American culture. It’s America’s original extreme sport.

Bull Teeter-Totter

  • Bull Teeter-Totter
    Bottoms Up

    The childhood game of teeter-totter takes on a whole new spin with cowboys bobbing up and down while trying to stay out of the way of an angry bull. Who will be brave enough to remain seated just long enough but still avoid becoming mincemeat?

Bull Poker

  • Bull Poker
    Know When to Fold 'Em

    It's the ultimate game of chicken. Four cowboys sit at a poker table in the middle of the arena with a raging bull on the loose. Last man to stay at the table wins. It ain't easy keeping your poker face with a menacing bull trying to bust you out of the game.

Touring Pro Division

  • Bull Poker
    Eight Seconds to Stardom

    The Touring Pro Division of Professional Bull Riding (PBR) brings up-and-coming bull riders to the Del Mar Arena. These cowboys are fighting to ride eight long, tough seconds, earn some cash, and qualify for a coveted spot in the Built Ford Tough PBR Series.

Fun for your Whole Posse
