Eight years ago while looking for a community event we could help sponsor to benefit the Manatee County 4H, it came to our attention that Bull Riding National Finals in south Florida was looking for a new home. After meeting with them, we decided it was a great fit for both our organizations. They would bring their top bull riders of the year and we selected the Manatee County Fairgrounds as the perfect fit for this family friendly event. This valued relationship concluded after the Finals held in January 2017. As an Invitational, we are now able to attract the best Bull Riders from many organizations insuring our goal of having the most talented group of riders in the events history. As part of our event this year we welcome the Premier Bull Riding Tour. This will be their 2018 Championship Finals. Please visit their home website at www.premierbullridingtour.com for more details.
Over the past eight years we have grown from 8 like-minded local sponsors to over 40 and have truly made it an event our community looks forward to every year. We have honored the top bull riders and provide a great arena for their performances. We have great food vendors, children activities and a fun atmosphere for the enjoyment of both riders and fans. In addition to the top riders, we have a nationally recognized talent including a Pro Bull Riding announcer, Clowns and bull fighters who both protect the riders and make sure the fans have an entertaining, fun filled experience. We take great pride in our arena event opening and rider instant replays, recognized nationally as some of the best for our size event. Our goal is to have top quality Riders, a family fun filled community event and raise money for both 4H and FFA. On behalf of all of our sponsors and volunteers; we invite you to join us this January 26th and 27th for the Conley Invitational presented by Arctic Air featuring some of the best Bull riders from the Southeast and beyond.
