A Dirt Kickin' Wicked Good Event

The Great Frontier Bull Riding Company produces Dirt Kickin' Wicked Good Bull Riding events throughout MN. During the two hours of wicked good bull riding we squeeze in hilarious clown skits and kids' events.

Great Frontier Bull Riding Company leases some of the best bucking stock in the state. Kowing what it takes in front of the chutes and in the back pens brings the bull riding event full circle. The show is non-stop with unexpected wrecks between cowboys and bulls...but don't fear, Great Frontier Bull Riding Co. brings two of the best bull fighters to save our cowboys from hang-ups or even worse.

FREE Fair Activity!!


Knockerball is a single chamber inflatable sphere with inner handles and adjustable shoulder straps. Knockerballs range from 1.2 Meters to 1.5 Meters and the size or fit is predicated on your height. Knockerballs can be used singularly to perfect your rolls, flips, and wheels. "KnockerBallers" describe the sensation as almost defying gravity, just imagine the sensation and mobility that a Knockerball allows you to experience without putting any stress on the body. With two or more Knockerball's the experience is catapulted into rip roaring laughter, exhilarating knocks and rolls that will keep you coming back for more.
