14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Mutton busting at the Wayne County (Utah) Fair

The father in the photo was holding onto his son the entire ride, so the boy was never in any danger. Children riding sheep has a long tradition in the West. Mutton busting at the county fair is one of the highlights of the annual Small Fry Rodeo in Wayne County Utah.
