Mutton Bustin

The long tradition of something for everyone at the Jim Bowie Days Celebration and Rodeo continues with our annual Mutton Bustin' competitions. We have three separate events. One during our Youth Rodeo Speed Events on Tuesday night, one during our Youth Rodeo Roping Events on Wednesday night, and then a 3-day event during our UPRA Performance Rodeo from Thursday to Saturday. During our UPRA event, two separate groups of Mutton Busters compete on Thursday and Friday. The top 6 are invited back on Saturday to compete for the grand prize. Particpaints are accepted on a first come first served basis with entry forms date/time stamped down to the seconds. Please note that in 2020, spots filled up within the first 2 minutes. Text Entries only on Tuesday the 21st staring at 9am till 12pm if spots have not alreay been filled. 

As of 2022 Jim Bowie Days Association is no longer allowing the use of ropes due to saftey concerns. We are also now insisting that every rider must have his/ her own saftey equpiment (helmet required, vest optional) there will be no sharing of equipment or providing of equpiment. Please respect these decisions as we are just trying to look out for our young cowboys and cowgirls.
