Mutton Bustin’mutton

Thank you to all of our great mutton busters who participated in the 101st Clovis Rodeo.

Always a fan favorite mutton bustin’ will return for the 102nd Clovis Rodeo. An opportunity for our next generation of cowboys and cowgirls to try for their best ride on a sheep. The mutton bustin’ champion for each performance receives a belt buckle from the Rodeo Association and a western hat from Sassano’s Mens Wear.
