Mutton Bustin’

Howdy Mutton Busters!!!!

Howdy Mutton Busters!!!!

Our Buckin’ Ohio Mutton Bustin’ series is fast becoming an exciting sport for the young cowboy and cowgirl.  Children are so excited when they come to our events to be a part of the show as competitors in the Mutton Bustin’.  Their faces light up the Buckin’ Ohio arena as they experience the thrill of riding a live sheep, geared up like a real cowboy or cowgirl in their professional attire with helmet and vest — the fans cheering them on.  The excitement is contagious and this is one of our most talked about events.  It is cowboy style, action-packed western fun for the children and their families, and we are always excited to meet the up and coming Mutton Busters.

At each event, the top two Mutton Busters are awarded prizes.  Scores are maintained from all summer series events.  We keep track of the scores and the high point winner of the series for the year wins the official Buckin’ Ohio Mutton Bustin’ Series Buckle.

If your child is competing for the year-end championship buckle, you will want to arrive early at our August and September events and get in line as we can take only the first 30 contestants who sign up.  We regret that we will not be able to make any exceptions due to the time constraints of our performance.

Royal-WireA special thank you to Royal Wire – our official Mutton Bustin’ Series sponsor, and the provider of our fabulous series buckle.
