Mutton Bustin' - Onsite Competition

Date: Aug 09, 2019
6 seconds and a sheep. A rider steps into the chute and prepares for a ride that will last only seconds. It’s a familiar scene in rodeo, but in this case the rider is a child between the ages of 5 and 7 and the bronco is a sheep.

The Jeffco Fair & Festival Mutton Bustin’ features children between the ages 5 and 7 and under 60 pounds riding sheep out of a chute and into the arena. Anything goes, and usually does, as contestants hold on as long as they can!

  • We encourage participants to arrive near the mutton bustin’ arena at least 30 minutes prior to each scheduled onsite performance. The number of participants are limited per show and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • For onsite competition, participants must pay a $15 fee per ride for each show. All ride fees are non-refundable.
For additional details, to learn how your child can qualify to compete in one of two grand champion mutton bustin’ competitions and for terms and requirements, visit the Mutton Bustin' section on our website.
