Kids at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo are ditching the saddle and going bareback atop a sheep. Mutton Busting is a popular sport for kids ages 5-7 attending the Rodeo who are between 35 and 60 lbs.

These pint-sized daredevils grab onto the sheep as it charges out of the gate. The goal: stay aboard the running, bucking livestock for 8 seconds.

From 10 a.m. 'til 5 p.m. 7 days a week during Rodeo season Mutton Busting is open to children who fit the age and weight criteria.

The tent is right next to Reliant Center.

Admission to bust a move atop a Mutton is $10.
