You use whichever hand is stronger and more comfortable for you to use. ---- I was told, if you write with your right hand, you use your left hand to grip the bull rope. You have a lot more balance and control by using your right hand balancing and visa versa.

Is bareback harder that bull riding?

Depends, its easier than bull riding in many aspects. Such includes how hard the animal can buck, the difficulty for the rider to maintain balance and how badly the injuries both during and after the ride. Bareback riding can be very hard on the cowboys body including his riding arm. Many riders can get their hand caught in the rigging and brake most of the bones in their hand, wrist and arm. All rough stock events are dangerous in their own way. i guess the biggest difference between the two is a horse will never purposely step on you, while a bull Will!
