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!
Details on our mutton bustin' competition and how your child can qualify for our grand champion mutton bustin' competition are below!
