Mutton Bustin’ is one of the most popular events at the Dinosaur Roundup Rodeo. Young cowboys and cowgirls that weigh less than 75 pounds and are between the ages of 4 to 7 hang on to the wool of the sheep, and try to stay on as long as possible. The rider can earn up to 100 points, based on how well and how long he or she stays aboard. Each night, the winner receives a trophy, and all riders receive a Justin Boots belt buckle and bandana.
We will have 10 Mutton Bustin’ riders each night, which will be selected by random draw from the pool of applicants. 2020 Registration for the Mutton Bustin’ will be during the month of June at the Vernal Area Chamber of Commerce, located at 134 W Main Street in Vernal.
