Bull Blast Another Big Success



Scotty Morton’s Longbranch Rodeo Arena held another successful Bull Blast with large crowds on Saturday, June 15th. Longbranch Rodeo this year is partnering with The Bailey Center for Special Needs in South Hill to increase awareness and funding for that organization. Earlier in the day, Longbranch Rodeo hosted a “sensory-friendly,” behind-the-scenes look at the rodeo. Families enjoyed hearing from bull riders, barrel racers, ropers, stock contractors and bull fighters.
