MSU Rodeo Team hosts mechanical bull riding fundraiser

MISSISSIPPI STATE, Miss. (WCBI) – Students at Mississippi State put their bull riding skills to the test to see if they could hang on for eight seconds.

This MSU Rodeo team hosted a mechanical bull riding fundraiser to help raise money for their school membership fee.

The membership ensures they will be able to participate in the college rodeo association Under Mississippi state.

Participants were able to ride for fun or enter the Jackpot pool for a chance to win a custom belt buckle and a cash prize.

“We are a smaller sport at MSU and we don’t have a lot of funding and support compared to other college rodeo programs in the state of Mississippi. But hopefully one day through fundraising events and even donations made to our donation account, we can grow our sport,” said Joy Nabors, Social Media Manager and Member of the Rodeo Team.

They are hoping to host more events like this in the future.
