February 1, 2019
Are you going to a party that will have a mechanical bull in the near future? Or perhaps you are planning a party and considering renting a mechanical bull. Whether you are an experienced rider or a novice, there are several things you can do to make your ride more successful and fun. Having proper technique is an important part of successfully riding the bull without getting hurt. In addition, having the right clothing and accessories can make your ride more fun and enjoyable. Let’s look at some tips for riding a mechanical bull in style.
How you ride the bull is more important than what you wear while riding. Having a good grip with your dominant hand is essential for a successful ride. Most bulls have some sort of handle or grip for holding on which can help you stay steady on the bull during your ride. Be sure to hold the grip in a way that you can easily release should you be thrown off. Holding on with one hand is preferable to two hands, so you can use your second hand for balance.
Trying to remain calm can also help you stay on the bull longer, and reduce the risk of injury. If you are tense and anxious your muscles will be also, making it harder to move with the bull. Balance is an essential part of riding a mechanical bull and being tense will prevent you from balancing during your ride.
In addition to having a good grip, remaining calm, and balancing on the bull, the clothes you wear can also help make your ride more successful. Because your legs will be rubbing against the bull it is a good idea to wear jeans or thicker pants that can prevent injury or irritation from rubbing.
In addition to protecting your legs you can also protect your gripping hand with a glove. If you plan to ride a mechanical bull on a regular basis you may want to invest in a pair of gloves so that you can protect your hand from blisters or sores.
Mechanical bull riding can be a fun addition to any event or party. Taking proper precautions can help ensure you have a successful and enjoyable ride. If you are planning a party and are in need of a mechanical bull rental in Maryland call us at Buckin Wild today!
