Sign your child up for a wild ride
The Professional Bull Riding circuit is making a
three-day stop in Big Sky this summer, August 2-4.
Although bull riding is the main event, kids also
have an opportunity to participate in Mutton Busting.
This exciting event, judged by certified PBR
judges, is similar to a bull ride, except children will
The age limit is six and under, and the child must
be under 60 pounds. The sheep will be provided
by local farm Ewe Hoo, located outside of Bozeman
(ewehoo.net). Sign-ups are on a first come,
first serve basis.
“There are a lot of sheep riders in the area,” said
Jacey Watson of Freestone Productions, the PBR
Production Company who is putting on the Big Sky
event. “Some of the kids might be pretty savvy and
have own their equipment.”
Freestone will supply the competitors with vests
and helmets for protection, and there are no ropes
or spurs allowed. The kids are encouraged to wear
boots, jeans and long sleeved shirts.
Prizes will be awarded, and according to Watson,
the winners could be anyone who puts on a good
show. “It’s a fun event, and great way to get the kids
involved,” she added.
