It was three nights of action-packed fun as the PMBR rode into town October 7-9, for their final event of the year. Pint-sized riders from seven states tried to tame miniature bulls in the area at the Box Elder County Fairgrounds. Here are a few highlights from the Thursday, Friday and Saturday night performances.
