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 12:30 pm Friday - Sunday
Parents, please note that all children participating in the event will be weighed.
- Stay on the longest
- Ride the farthest
- Have fun!
May 13 - 15, 2016. Number of riders is limited per day.

Three Cheers for Charity
This year, Helldorado has partnered with local charities like never before. While proceeds of the event have always been given to charity, the 2015 event will be dedicating each night specifically to a much-needed cause, right here in our community! Come support the Animal Foundation, Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada, Shade Tree Shelter and Project 150! In addition to a portion of your ticket supporting the charity, you also can bring in an item for donation to get a ticket discount if you buy at the gate!Read More
