A little background about the SSBR:

The SSBR stands for Southern State Bull Riding. The SSBR was formed in 2005 giving young entry-level bull riders an opportunity to compete and gain experience. Little did they realize how this organization would grow in just a few short years.
 
Today, the SSBR is one of the most well known organizations in the country. In the past five years the SSBR riders have been involved in events in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Tennessee. Riders in International events include the countries of Costa Rica, Guatemala, Brazil and Japan. Since 2005, the SSBR has sanctioned over 300 events with over 500 riders from many countries such as Brazil, and Mexico and all over the United States competing for prize money and championships.
 
The SSBR Pro Division consists of riders at the highest level of the sport, riding some of the best bulls in the country. In February of 2010 the championship finals were moved to Palmetto Florida and presented by Conley Buick GMC.  The tradition continues in 2011 with the SSBR partnership with Conley Buick GMC hosting the largest event in the history of the SSBR Tour Finals.
