Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

The series showcases the talent, hard work, and mental discipline necessary to survive professional rough stock riding. And while the cowboys' wild rides and bone-crushing falls clearly show the real dangers associated with the sport, they also celebrate what these men consider to be a true test of a their raw physical strength and courage.

There's not a lot of stereotyping here, and viewers will learn a lot about the sport as well as the culture that surrounds it. But while the rough riding may be exciting for some, the action comes with a fair share of rough language and hard falls. Many teens will be able to handle it, but it's not really age-appropriate for tweens.
