WATCH: Twin Sisters Share the Mutton Bustin' Spotlight

SAN ANGELO, TX – Everyone's favorite rodeo event returned Wednesday night and had people thinking they were seeing double. 

At the San Angelo Rodeo, on Apr. 14, twin sisters Aleigha and Olivia Martin stole the show at the Sonora Bank Mutton Bustin'. Aleigha won the contest by scoring an 89 point ride. 

When asked how it felt to be on the back of the sheep, Aleigha simply explained it as "soft." Her main motivation was simple. "I wanted to win for my mom!" exclaimed Aleigha. 

Her sister Olivia was short with words but was very excited for her sister's win.

The Sonora Bank Mutton Bustin' will continue throughout the rest of the rodeo. For more rodeo coverage click here.
