Bronc riding is a competitive rodeo event, where horses who are deliberately encouraged to try and throw off the rider by bucking are ridden. The term is also used in general to describe an untrained or disobedient horse that attempts to throw off a rider by bucking. Historically, it referred to mature feral or semi-feral horses captured from the wild and "broken" to ride, though such animals are now federally protected and excess populations culled from the range are usually trained with more modern and humane techniques.
