Bullfighters - "Chuck Swisher" & "Cody Emerson"

 

 

Chuck Swisher – here for his second year at the Ponca City rodeo scene, watch out for bullfighter Chuck Swisher.

The Dover, Oklahoma resident got his PBR bullfighting card in April of 2010, but he has been fighting bulls since he was 15. "My dad rode bulls, and I figured I'd follow him" into bull riding, Swisher says. He competed for a few years, and then one day it came to him. "One of my buddies was fighting bulls, and I thought, 'he gets paid every time, and he's out there longer than 8 seconds.' Why not get paid every time I went to a rodeo?" Swisher said.

When he set his mind to fighting bulls professionally, that is exactly what he did and hasn't looked back, the Lord has blessed me with the talent and he deserves all of the glory. And also an office job scares me" Chuck said.

Chuck says the best part about bull fighting is the adrenaline rush and helping guys out. "The bull riders are always walking up to me and saying, 'you're crazy.'" Chuck disagrees with them. "No, they're the crazy ones. They're tied to the bulls. I'm just out there having fun."

Cody Emerson – here for his first year at the Ponca City rodeo scene, watch out for bullfighter Cody Emerson.

Many may think that being a bull fighter is just pure crazy but, Cody Emerson says that there is no better feeling. “Yes, it is an adrenaline rush, but there’s so much more to it. Stepping in to save one of your buddies or getting around a bull and keeping everyone from getting in a jam is the best feeling,” he said of why he does it.


While these athletes put their lives on the line to protect bull riders from the fury that blasts out of the chutes, it is easy to overlook that it is a true art form and, just like any other sporting event, has its basic nitty-gritty to help them along and strive for excellence. The 26-year old cowboy protector has been fighting since he was 18 years old
