This past Thursday through Saturday, 30 young cowboys and cowgirls from across East Texas came to the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show to try their hand at mutton bustin'.   

Night number one saw Eedan Brown of San Augustine take the top ride with a score of 75 points of the sheep named 'Global Warming'.  Friday night, Mason Bates of Nacogdoches rode 'Cotton Top' to a top score of 83 points.  And, wrapping things up on Saturday, it was Kayleigh Dziedzic of Garrison winning top honors with a score of 84 on 'Ewe 2'.

Take a look at pictures of the riders above and a video compilation of rides below.
