Mutton Bustin at the Pioneer Days Rodeo
Thursday , July 24, 2014 - 3:30 PM
OGDEN - Every night, the Ogden Pioneer Day Rodeo kicks off with an army of kindergarten aged cowboys and cowgirls. Before the main events, around two dozen five and six year olds climb into the bull riding shoots, wrap their limbs around a sheep, and hold on as the animals sprint and kick out into the arena. Most of the young mutton busters are down within a few yards, but a small handful manage to stay on for eight seconds or more before they hit the dirt.
