Physics of Bull-Riding

Yup! This is no bull. Since we have had the physics of [insert favorite activity or TV show], why not have the physics of bull-riding?

"What some people don't know is that the force the bull exerts on the rider is the same as the force the rider exerts back on the bull. The difference is that the bull is about ten times the size of the rider, so that's ten times the acceleration," said UNR physics professor, Ron Phaenuf.

I can easily say that I don't see any significant probability that I'll be testing this in my lifetime.
