  1. Participants may be any age, but must weigh less than 60 pounds for the sheep’s safety.
  2. Parent or guardian must sign waiver! NOTE:  Waivers for the rides DO NOT APPLY to this attraction.  This attraction requires a separate waiver.
  3. After registering, stay at the registration booth. Once all competing youth are together, they will be taken in a group to the chute area. ONE ADULT may accompany each child to the chute area—this is especially encouraged for young children riding a sheep for the first time!
  4. To allow as many children to ride a sheep as possible, rides are being limited to ONE PER CHILD. New riders will take priority over previous riders.
