Bull riders are bull riders, not cowboys.

They are athletes trying to ride a bull for a certain amount of time in order to make money. If you think they are cowboys, how come a jockey is not called a cowboy? They work on a horse.

Cowboys get up at 5 a.m. check the cows, fix fence, keep the waters working, calve, put up hay, move cattle from pasture to pasture and then help their neighbor do theirs.

They spend more time in a saddle or on a 4-wheeler than bull riders ever dreamed of.

Just because you wear a hat doesn't make you a cowboy ...
