Mutton Bustin'

Date: Sept 23 - Oct 01, 2022
2022 Mutton Bustin event is full
Mutton Bustin' has become a crowd favorite at rodeos across the nation. Nothing is more exciting than watching the little cowboys and cowgirls holding onto a hand full of wool as they try to hang on for their 8 second ride. Children 4-7 years of age and who weigh less than 55 lbs. the day of the competition are eligible to compete. This year entries will be accepted ONLINE ONLY starting August 16, 2022 at 8:00 am. The first 100 qualified applicants will be accepted, see rules for full details.

A Grand Champion buckle will be awarded to the Contestant with the highest score at the Finals Round on Sunday, October 2, 2022, with prizes for each Contestant in the preliminary rounds. Be sure to come out and root for your favorite cowboy or cowgirl as they have the ride of their life!

Here's how it works...
At 8:00 am Tuesday, August 16th, visit the website. Click on the preferred date, complete the entry and submit payment. A confirmation email will be sent. That's it...you're registered.
If your preferred date is unavailable, go to the next available date. If all dates are full, there is the alternate option. Alternates will only be able to ride should someone opt out. Ride dates for alternates will be determined based on availability.
