Jonnie Jonckowski

An athlete her entire life, Jonnie tried bull riding for fun but found the sport could give her the challenge she desired and so took it up professionally. Jonnie’s competitive spirit helped her overcome many barriers to become a two-time world champion bull rider, paving the way for the women who followed her. Many arenas began to allow women to ride rough stock for the first time since the 1930s.
