Each performance of the rodeo will feature mutton bustin'! To be eligible to participate you must be between the ages of four and eight and weigh 50 pounds or less. We invite up to 13 children per day to participate and we limit each child to one day of participation each year.
For those of you unfamiliar with mutton bustin', during this event children are mounted on sheep within the bucking chutes then released from the chutes to ride the sheep as far as they can. It is great fun and always a fierce competition!
Here is the 2017 mutton bustin' application. Please mail completed application and a check payable to Truckee Pro Rodeo to:
Truckee Pro Rodeo Association
P.O. Box 2424
Truckee, CA 96160
Entries are $55 per contestant and are non-refundable.
The Truckee Pro Rodeo Association will confirm your child's registration with a phone call or email.
We advise each child to wear a helmet; however, we do not provide these. Please bring a helmet for your child.
Each mutton bustin' contestant will receive a commemorative t-shirt, one rodeo admission ticket for themselves, and one rodeo admission ticket for a parent or guardian for the day they ride.
The winner of the event will receive a prize!
Entries will be accepted until both days are filled. We will post when registration is full.
