DENVER — (KUSA) Put some kids on an animal and tell 'em to hold on. What could possibly go wrong?

The National Western Stock Show is underway in Denver, Colorado. On Thursday, it was mutton bustin' night. That's where 50 kids, ages five to six, compete against each other to see how long they can hold onto a sheep.

"I was like riding on the sheep; it was like holding onto a car at the top," said Jackson Remington.

He’ll compete against the other winners of Thursday’s round next Tuesday night.
