Meet the Mutton Busters!

By Paul Gerke. CREATED Jul 20, 2012

In 1988, the Snake River Stampede introduced "mutton busting" to its rodeo. In the event, kids ages 5-7 attempt to ride sheep for 8 seconds, similar to the way their older counterparts ride bulls. Mutton busting caught on and has been a part of the show ever since... and it's easy to see why.
