Who is Julie Carrillo?

Julie Carrillo, wife of PBR Co-Founder Gilbert Carrillo, will posthumously receive the Sharon Shoulders Award in 2017, an honor that recognizes the great women of professional bull riding whose work, partnership and faith have been as integral to the sport as the athletes themselves.

Carrillo past away earlier in 2017 after a long battle with cancer.

She was a strong supporter of her husband during his bull riding career, and continued after his retirement, helping him run 4C’s Bucking Bulls & Training Facility and 8 Second Saloon.

More importantly, she was a loving mother to the couple’s son Chase and daughter Cheney, and was a successful insurance agent specializing in livestock and events.
