The Sonora Bank Mutton Bustin' is a crowd pleaser during the rodeo. This competition features some fearless children saddling up a lively sheep in hopes of hanging on as long as they can. The crowd is on their feet with cameras in hand ready to capture these adorable and unforgettable moments.
The Mutton Bustin' takes place during every rodeo performance, except the PRCA Finals and Cinch Shoot-Out. Participation is limited to boys and girls weighing less than 50 pounds at the time of competition. Information is distributed in January to local schools. San Angelo and out of town schools may select one (1) participant from each school. Entries must be received from a local elementary school. Participants will be notified at the beginning of February which performance they have been selected.
The Twin Mountain Fence Sponsored Midway Mutton Bustin' will be held daily before rodeo performances on weekends. The Twin Mountain Fence Midway Mutton Bustin' is open to all kids that weigh under 50 pounds. Kids may walk up and enter for a $10.00 entry fee. All children must be accompanied by an adult to sign a Minor's Release Form. Please see the schedule below for times of the Twin Mountain Fence Midway Mutton Bustin'.
