The Mutton Bustin' event is a crowd favorite! Little Buckaroos "cowboy up" and hold on for six exciting seconds! The audience goes wild as these young rodeo contestants take a thrilling ride under the big lights of the AT&T Center. Mutton Bustin' takes place during every rodeo performance, excluding the Finals. 

Participation is limited to boys and girls between the ages of 4-7 and weighing less than 55 lbs. fully clothed, at the time of competition. Entries for the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Mutton Bustin' are accepted online between September 15th and October 15th. Contestants will be randomly selected from a pool of qualified entries. Participants are notified in December each year.

Please answer registration questions accurately as requested on the registration form - all Mutton Bustin' communications will be via email, so triple check the email you provide on your child's registration.  Selected riders will pay a $50 ride fee and a video of the chosen rider's run in the arena will be sent to the parent/guardian email address you provide also.

Good luck!!
