Wool Riders Only - Mutton Busting

Free shows daily

Located near the Green Gate



Mutton busting is similar to the world it imitates - bull riding. Contestants ages 4-7 years and less than 60 lbs. attempt to last six seconds on a sheep that's as unpredictable as a bull. What could be more fun for a child than holding onto a sheep and lasting 6 seconds!

Qualifying rounds lead up to the championship performances. Everyone who wants to ride gets to ride, on a first-come first basis. Sheep are released from a chute, just like a bull riding competition, and take the rider to the other side of the arena. It's tough to hold on! These young riders excite the crowd, and everyone cheers them on. Prizes, trophies, and buckles are the awards that are given to the riders. Shows daily. Cost to compete is $10.
