Indoor, Outdoor & Kids' Trampolines

Mutton Busting | Iowa State Fair 2012


>>MUTTON BUSTING IS STARTING KIDS OUT THAT
LIKE THE SPORT OF RODEO AND WANT TO GET INVOLVED, SO THEY CAN GET USED TO THE FEEL AND THE MOVEMENT
AND COMPETITION.>>GETS CRAWL OVER THE BACK OF THOSE LITTLE
BUCKET CHUTES, THOSE AREN’T LITTLE BUCKET CHUTES.
THAT’S AN 1800 POUND BULL IN THERE WITH HORNS THIS WIDE, YOU KNOW.>>AT THEIR AGE,
IT’S PROBABLY PRETTY DIFFICULT. IT’S PROBABLY COMPARED TO US RIDING BIG BULLS.
>>LAST YEAR THERE WAS ONLY THREE TIMES SLOTS, SO THIS YEAR WE ADDED A COUPLE MORE.
I THINK IT’S GOING BETTER, BUT WE’RE STILL FILLING THE SLOTS UP.
THERE’S ABOUT 300 KIDS THAT RIDE OVER THE FIVE PERFORMANCES.
>>I FOUND IT ON THE WEBSITE AND I WAS PRETTY EXCITED WHEN I SAW IT, BECAUSE HE’D DONE IT
BEFORE IN ARIZONA. SO DID HIS SISTER.
IT’S A LOT OF FUN. WE JUST LOVE THE FAIR.
>>HIS OLDER BROTHER DIDN’T WANT TO DO IT, SO HE’S TAKING ONE FOR THE TEAM.
>>HOW DOES MOM FEEL ABOUT THAT?>>I’M EXCITED.
I THINK IT WILL BE FUN.>>THEY’RE EXCITED.
THEY TALKED ABOUT IT ALL MORNING LONG.>>WHEN YOU DO MUTTON BUSTING, YOU HAVE TO
HOLD ONTO THEM ON THEIR FUR WITH YOUR HAND, AND THEN YOU HAVE TO WRAP YOUR LEGS AROUND
THEM AND HOLD ONTO THEM.>>IT’S SCARY FOR A LITTLE KID TO GET ON A
SHEET. IT’S LIKE IT’S SCARY TO GET ON BULLS. śś
>>USUALLY WHEN WE GO TO THESE DEALS, THEY DON’T HAVE TO RIDE FOR SIX SECONDS.
WE USUALLY GIVE THEM A SCORE OR WHATEVER. SIX SECONDS IS PRETTY TOUGH ON THESE THINGS.
>>WHAT WE LOOK FOR IS IF THEY SET UP AND HAVE CONTROL OF THEM WHILE THEY’RE RIDING
ON THEM AND NOT HANGING OFF THE SIDE
AND KEEPING UP WITH THE SHEEP.>>THEY SOMETIMES HAVE TO HAVE A LITTLE COAXING.
YOU SEE THEM, AND THEY’LL COME OUT AND THEY’LL FALL, SLIDE ON THE GROUND, AND THEY GET UP
AND THEY’RE SMILING: CAN WE DO IT AGAIN?!
>>I THINK THE KIDS ARE HAVING FUN. THEY LOOK LIKE THEY’RE HAVING FUN. THERE’S BEEN A FEW CRIERS
BUT IT’S FUN. THERE’S TONS OF KIDS DOING IT, AND THEY ALL
LOVE DOING IT. THERE’S FUN MUSIC AND THE JUDGES ARE FINE,
SO IT’S A BLAST.>>THEY LOVE IT EVERYWHERE YOU GO. śś
>>NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE REST OF THE RODEO, THIS IS THE PART WHERE THE GRANDMAS
COME, THE GREAT GRANDMAS COME, AND THIS IS WHERE THE STORIES ARE TOLD.
THIS IS WHERE THE ADDICTION OF RODEO, I LIKE TO SAY
THIS IS WHERE THEY GET HOOKED, RIGHT HERE.
