A fan favorite, Mutton Bustin' is for the younger set of cowboys and cowgirls - from the ages of 5 to 7 and under 60 pounds. This crowd pleaser is typically the very first event of the evening to kick off the rodeo action each evening.
The object is for the rider to hold onto his or her sheep and ride for 6 seconds. Riders can either hold on around the neck or put their hands into the wool and grip. No ropes, spurs, or riding backwards is allowed in the competition. Helldorado does provide a Courtesy Booth during the event to check-in items such as strollers and packages if needed.
Held in the rodeo arena, it begins at 7:00 pm Thur – Sat.
With a new Feature this year: Mutton Bustin’ finals on Sunday at 4:00pm
Parents, please note that all children participating in the event will be weighed.
- Stay on the longest
- Ride the farthest
- Have fun!
May 14 - 17, 2015. Number of riders is limited per day.
