RodeoHouston Mutton Bustin' champ left speechless after win

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The 6-year-old winner of RodeoHouston's Mutton Bustin' competition could be described as the strong and silent type.

Contest host Patti Smith asked Ryker Rodriguez, of Cypress, several questions after his victory, but it seems he just couldn't find the words.

At one point, Ryker shook his head, affirming the ride was easy. By the looks of the replay, he certainly makes it look easy!

Ryker hooked his legs and arms around the sheep and held on tight, riding across the field at NRG Stadium for a score of 91.

Rodeo announcers said Ryker loves watching calf roping, but that might have changed after he took home the prized Mutton Bustin' belt buckle.
