Five to seven-year-olds under 55 pounds ride a sheep out of a chute and into an arena. Like professional rodeo events, time and score count. Anything goes and usually does, as contestants cling to the back of thickly coated lambs for as long as they can.
Mutton Bustin’ will occur an hour and fifteen minutes prior to the start of each rodeo, with around 30 kids participating in each pre-show. The top scores and a lucky number winner from each pre-show will compete in a championship round of mutton bustin’ during the rodeo. Mutton Busters will draw a lucky number at check-in. A number will be drawn after the pre-show to give a mutton buster, who had not already qualified, a spot in the rodeo performance
