See larger 	Ricky Brack gets bucked off during a ride in LaBelle at Bull Pit Outreach Ministry on a summer evening. 'I never feared any of the bulls when I first got on,' said Ricky. 'When I broke my leg [riding], that's when I finally started getting fear.' Brack says he has gotten beyond that, now. 'There's a difference between being scared and respecting [the bulls]. I talk to every bull I get on now out of respect. I say things like, 'you take care of me, I'll take care of you. Let's make each other look good.''
