RED BLUFF, Calif. - The 29th Annual National Bull Riding Championship New Year's Eve event was held on Dec. 31 in Red Bluff with riders of all ages.

Six-year-old Cash Dinny won mutton bustin' in Redding in 2018 and won again on Tuesday.

"I won, I won like the real one, until the sheep stopped, I won," exclaimed Dinny.

The mutton bustin' was one of the opening competitions for the main bull riding event.

Bull riders say they had to apply with their times to be in the event and they said they love competing for the thrill.

"It is indescribable honestly, you have 2,000 pounds of muscle and everything going against you, and when you are on it and it's going right, it feels perfect," said bull rider, Seth Thompson. "There is nothing else to describe it in my opinion."

"I just like the adrenaline rush, and a lot of the guys are great," said bull rider, Kevin Gregorio. "A lot of the older guys are good about helping out the younger guys."

Action News Now reached out to different businesses in Red Bluff and they shared they have seen an increase of business with the event in town.
