Mutton Bustin’


Mutton Bustin’ is an exciting part of each rodeo performance where participants attempt to take a wooly ride! All Mutton Bustin' sessions take place in the Outdoor Arena.

Entries will be taken one hour before the scheduled start time at the Indoor Arena Box Office. The first 40 kids ages 5 – 7 and 50 pounds and under are allowed to ride. The entry fee is $25. No bills larger than $50.00 will be accepted. The top 10 scores of each Mutton Bustin’ session will have the opportunity to ride at the ticketed rodeo performance later the same day. Like professional rodeo events, time and score count, but all these aspiring cowboys and cowgirls receive a participation ribbon.

Long-sleeved shirts and pants are required. Boots or tennis shoes, NO SANDALS or open-toed shoes allowed. A safety vest & helmet are provided and must be worn by the rider. No spurs and riders must ride forward. Participation Waiver must be signed before the ride. Sorry pardner, no re-rides, and the judge’s decision is final.

Come cheer on your favorite little Cowboy or Cowgirl!

Ride Times:

The Kiefer Hitch - 6 Horse Percheron Horse Hitch

The Hitch will be on display in the Large Animal Barn
Saturday, August 5 and Sunday, August 6.
They will also perform during the PRCA Rodeo performances!

Kiefer Farm is a local, family owned hitch. It all began with Ike & Diamond, a pair of farm horses, to 11 head of Percheron horses today, that TJ & Stacie currently count as part of the family. In just five years-time the Kiefer Hitch has become a well-known contender in Hitch competitions across the region and may be seen at numerous shows, rodeos, parades and other events. As a family owned operation with owners who both work outside the farm, TJ and Stacie both acknowledge and greatly appreciate that the Hitch would not be what it is without all the help and time put in by their friends and family.
