Kids 12 and under just $5!  Don’t clown around and miss the fun – advanced tickets are available at Haegle’s Western Store, Tractor Supply Company or by stopping out at McCrossan Boys Ranch. Tickets will always be available the day of the event at the gate as well.

Attention future cowboys we will again have Mutton Busting! The toughest sport on wool!

    So glad there is a place for boys to go that need help and guidance. God bless everyone that works and volunteers there.

      Kids must be under 8 years old and under 60 lbs. to mutton bust. When you arrive sign up at the announcer booth/concession stand “aka Crows Nest.” We draw the names of 15 kids to participate.

      We do have assorted sizes of helmets on hand. If you wish to bring your own helmet that is always fine – a good fitting comfortable helmet they like is always a bonus.
