Mutton Bustin'

Date: June 28 - June 29, 2024
Mutton Bustin'
Mutton Bustin' offers youngsters between the ages of 4 and 7 a chance to begin their own rip-roaring rodeo careers.

Here's how it works: With a sheep readied in the chute, a child is set on its back and holds on with arms wrapped tightly around the neck and gripping with their legs. When the sheep and rider come out of the chute, the small cowboy or cowgirl will hold on and ride the sheep for as long as they can! Whether it's a one second or ten second ride, these youngsters are in for a wild, exciting and memorable time!

Saturday Afternoon Mutton Bustin'!

This year, we have added a Saturday Afternoon Mutton Bustin' event to take place during our Family Day festivities. The Mutton Bustin' will begin following our Rodeo Slack performance at approximately 1:00 PM. Start time is subject to change should the slack performance run longer than anticipated.
