5 Year Olds Try to Ride Sheep in 'Mutton Bustin' (Video)


One of the more popular events at the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Show is "mutton bustin."

BleacherReport.com reports that small children try to ride sheep like a cowboy would a bucking bronco. The child who stays on the longest wins.

According to KTRK, the kids hold on for dear life as the sheep are released into a pen (video below).

RodeoHouston.com states, "Participants must be between the ages of 5 and 6 years old and not weigh more than 55 pounds."
