Riverview, FL -- A young girl who died in a bull riding accident was remembered Saturday night.

Remington Rough Stock hosted a memorial bull riding event honoring Brooke Ann Coats to raise money for her favorite charities.

The Riverview High School student died Feb. 18 while riding at the Crosstown Arena. She was kicked in the chest.

On Saturday, rodeo watchers bowed their heads for eight seconds of silence. Many wore pink shirts and wristbands in Brooke's honor.

Rodeo organizers say they plan to continue to hold shows in her memory.
