MESQUITE, TX — It takes guts and grit to ride a bucking bull. The thrill of holding on for an eight second ride guaranteed to rough you up, attracts a certain breed. But, braving the bull requires more than just courage and nerves of steel.

Some cowboys shot of out the chute at an early age in the bull riding arena. NewsFix caught up with four Junior Bull Riders who aren’t afraid to take the bull by the horns; or in this case, the rope.

Check out these real cowboys at the Mesquite Pro Rodeo, every Friday and Saturday night through August.
