Shooting the bull with Jewel and Ty Murray

The First Couple on CMT’s ”Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge” offer tips for mounting the mechanical beast

Posted on

1. Wear Pants
”Bare legs are not good,” says Jewel, unless…”you just wanna get laid. Then wear a miniskirt.”

2. Drink
How many bottles of courage? ”It depends on your weight,” says host and seven-time world champ Murray.

3. Stretch
Before and after, suggests Murray: ”You’re going to use your groin, hamstring, and back muscles in a way most people are not used to.”

4. Use Technique
”You’re always counterbalancing,” says Jewel. So when the front end points up, bend forward at the waist; as the rear rises, lean back.

5. Nurse Your Bruises
Murray laughs, ”With more of what got you to get on the bull in the first place.” (See step 2.) </p
