Not many people would describe tying their hand to an 1,800-pound animal that could trample them in a matter of seconds as freeing, but that’s exactly how bull rider Hunter Adams sees it. “For eight seconds...from when I nod my head to when I get off, it’s like I’m free,” he says. “I ain't got to think about work, I don't’ have to think about anything else, I just know it's me and the bull and God.”
