Mutton Bustin’

Mutton Bustin’ 2018-05-30T18:02:39+00:00

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!

The winner of the event will receive a prize!
