World Equestrian Brands Helmet Cam: Bareback Bronc

Professional bareback bronc rider Ryan Gray of Cheney, Washington shows us what it takes to be an 8-time NFR qualifier. Hang on tight and keep that free hand high — it’s going to be a wild ride!

I usually think of bucking as a behavior to be avoided if at all possible. For PRCA bareback riders like Ryan Gray, however, riding quality-bred bucking stock is a way of life. Arguably one of the most thrilling rodeo events, bareback bronc riding requires a rider to stay aboard an enthusiastically bucking horse for eight seconds using only one hand to grasp the handle of special rigging cinched around the horse.

If you’ve ever wanted to experience the thrill of bareback bronc riding without the hazards of the job, check this out:

Well-played! If I wore a helmet cam while riding a bucking bronc, I’m pretty sure it would just be one big close-up shot of the dirt:

Ryan Gray has been competing in PRCA rodeos since 2002 and is no stranger to the dangers of riding roughstock. His injury résumé includes a torn groin and lower abdominal muscles, not to mention a lacerated liver from being trampled by a bronco aptly named American Dreams. In addition to his slo-mo GoPro riding video, Ryan has filmed a YouTube series called “Bareback 101,” featuring himself and other dashingly handsome cowboys as they prepare for their events.
