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.”

Roman Rider – Dusti Crain Dickerson
Dusti Crain Dickerson was born and raising in a rodeo family. Her father owned a small rodeo company in Southern Illinois where she carried flags and barrel raced. Dusti caught the Roman riding and trick riding bug at the age of 11 during a family vacation to Branson, MO., to Dolly Partons Dixie Stampede. She proceeded to go home and work tirelessly and grew into one of the fastest and most exciting acts in rodeo today. The last 12 years Dusti was the featured Roman rider in the Pigeon Forge, TN., and traveled to rodeos moderately. She is now retired from the show and is very excited to perform on the road full time! Her acts are high flying, with fast, beautiful horses and colorful, unique costumes!
