The Salt Lake County Fair fills the ring with competitions that feature riders of several different kinds of livestock in its Bull & Wool Blast. Bull riders perch atop bucking behemoths, clinging for dear life while their mounts try to throw off their riders and impress dance-show talent scouts in the audience. Riders guide their horses in high-speed slaloms in barrel races, and mini bulls give aspiring younger rodeo stars a space to shine. The tiniest cowboys in training hop on sheep for the mutton-busting games, open to kids aged 4–7.
