Good, clean fun is what Melissa Mallory of Redding, California calls the Redding Rodeo. Now in its 67th year, this annual equestrian event offers everything from bareback riding to Budweiser Clydesdale horses, mutton busting and Asphalt Cowboys.
What’s mutton busting you might ask? Children, ranging in ages from six to seven years old, ride the back of the sheep. The sheep take off running and we see how long the little buckaroos can stay on. They all get silver belt buckles, so everyone walks away a winner at this rodeo.
