It is where you pad and helmet up your small child.
Then let some cowboy you don't know place him on top of a trapped sheep.
Then they open the gate and your little one holds on for the ride of his life.
Eventually, they fall off but we told Sam that if he rode all the way to the end, he would win a prize.
That is all it took and that child held onto the side of that sheep twice as long as any of the other participants.
Until he finally fell off and another unknown cowboy rushed to his rescue before the sheep could return and step on him.
I agree it all sounds a little ridiculous.
But this 5-year old had the time of his life and HE WON!
