Mutton Bustin' Registration Begins Wednesday


SAN ANGELO, TX – With the San Angelo Stock Show and rodeo just a few weeks away the preparations for Mutton Bustin' have just begun.

The Sonora Bank sponsored Mutton Bustin' is a crowd pleaser and features some fearless children saddling on sheep and holding on with all they got.

This year the crowd favorite will only be taking place during the rodeo performances as the Midway competitions were canceled for this season.

Parents interested in having their children participate can register online beginning Wednesday, March 10th.

Participation is limited to boys and girls weighing less than 50 pounds and a minimum of 4 years of age at the time of competition.

Sign up will be on a first come - first serve basis and every contestant must pay a $25.00 entry fee. The fee is non-refundable and registration will close as soon as all posted slots are filled.

During registration, parents will select their preferred date and will only be allowed to sign up for one performance. Each contestant will receive two tickets.

Children will be weighed on site at the Foster Communications Coliseum before the rodeo performance.

YEEEEEHAWWWWW rope that sheep !!! And make sure you drive like absolute sheet when you pull onto grape creek road when you leave!!! 

We need to stop using animals as entertainment . Animals are terrified and many die and are injured in rodeos . And teaching children its ok to be cruel to sheep by trying to ride them is ridiculous! Stop teaching that cruelty to “farm” animals is ok , its not , its wrong. Ban these type of cruel entertainment using animals . Teach kindness.
