As a child, Guytin Tsosie used to sit in front of the television set watching the best professional bull riders. Now he's one of them.

Tsosie, 22, from Burnham, N.M., is the only Navajo bull rider to ride in the PBR Built Ford Tough Series that tours the country as riders compete for money, rankings and a chance to perform in the championship in Las Vegas.

"It's a dream come true," Tsosie said in a phone interview. "I always watched PBR as a little kid and a few months ago I never thought I'd be here."
