Healthy Competition: Reno Rodeo Mutton Bustin’


For 11 days each summer, fans of the Reno Rodeo dust off their cowboy hats and don their favorite pair of boots to watch all of the entertainment offered at the Rodeo fairgrounds. One of the crowd pleasers is mutton bustin’, a chance for kids to get a thrill of a lifetime.

Mamas, if you don’t want your babies to grow up to be cowboys, you might want to keep them away from mutton bustin’ at the Reno Rodeo. This friendly competition gives kids ages 5 to 7-years-old a chance to mount their trusty sheep and hang on as long as they can.

This popular event gets kids away from electronic devices and gives them a chance to play in the dirt and conquer their fears. These mini rodeo riders work hard, set goals and learn how to perform under pressure – all while having fun!
