More live events are returning to the Borderland and bull riding fans will be happy to learn Tuff Hedeman is bringing bull riding back.

The Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding tour will kick off their 16th year touring in El Paso this summer. The two-hour competition will take place on July 17th at the El Paso County Coliseum. Tickets for the "Ride It Out Tour" will go on sale this Thursday, May 27th at 10 a.m. local time.

Tickets range in price from $25 to $90 and are for sale at the TicketMaster website. You can purchase your tickets without some fees in person at the Coliseum box office.

Bull riders compete during the event for $30,000 in prize money. Tuff Hedeman is a four-time world champion bull rider and a Hall of Fame bull rider for ProRodeo Hall of Fame, Texas Cowboys Hall of Fame, Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame, and more. Tuff Hedeman was also born right here in El Paso.

In honor of the return of Tuff Hedeman's Bull Riding event, please enjoy one of the most beloved videos we have from Tuff's event. This is the time Fernie was forced to go and participate in Rodeo Poker back in 2008. Fernie was ready to run as soon as the bull came out of its pen. Fernie is a lot braver than most of us since I wouldn't have even gone in there in the first place.
