Horse-loving 6-year-old wins Mutton Bustin' event at Houston Rodeo

HOUSTON - A horse-loving 6-year-old from Webster won the Mutton Bustin' event Tuesday night at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Aldin Leija from Webster said her ride was like being on a magic carpet.

"It felt like a carpet," she said about the sheep.

And how did she practice for her RodeoHouston ride?

"I rided (sic) on my dad's back," she said.

Aldin rode right through the flock and chased the herd off.

She said she wants to be a pet vet when she grows up.
