Learn to "Talk like a Cowboy"

  • Rank - a bull that is very difficult to ride is considered a 'rank.' "That bull right there, he's a rank one, I tell ya."
  • Cover - when a rider 'covers' his bull, he has successfully ridden a bull for 8 seconds. "Hell yeah, he covered that one."
  • Chaps - most people mispronounce this word, say it like with an "s" (shaps)
  • Draw - an event's list of bull riders and the bulls they are paired with. "Dustin, what'd you draw tonight?"
  • Down in the well - saying used by riders to describe a situation in which a bull is spinning in one direction and the force of the spin pulls the rider down the side of the bull into the motion's vortex. "Ah he's done for, he's got him down in the well."
  • Fades - A bull that fades during a ride moves backward while simultaneously spinning or bucking in one or more direction. "Oh shucks, he's gonna buck him off cuz he's fadin' fast."
  • Muley - term used to describe a bull without horns. "He done got stepped on by that brown muley."
