Help getting into BB riding

Howdy y'all. So long story short I was born in was I traveled accross the country doing what I love which is breaking colts. One goal that won't let me be and that's trying bareback bronc riding. I currently live in Shelbyville, TN and I'm 19. I've been working hard to try to find anyone here to give me a leg up on this. Its been killing me everyday that I haven't tried this. If anyone has any advice for me in general or can help me get in contact with someone who knows more about this sport or can train me I'd be greatly appreciative.
Thank you,

Welcome to the forum!

As suggested, a school would be a good place to look. To compete, you will most likely have to join an association. Not sure if there is such a thing as a local open rodeo anymore.

One thing for certain is, that competition bareback bronc riding is nothing like starting colts or working problem horses. The objectives are completely different.

One thing you may be able to do on your own is something my mentor suggested, way back when. Put your rig (minus the flank strap) on a gentle horse. Mount up, minus your spurs, and go to a lope or canter. Lay back, and work on your rhythm and spurring technique as the horse lopes around the arena or in the field.

Hope that helps some.
