BOISE -- Cowboys and spectators wore pink Wednesday night at the "Stampede for a Cure" night of the Snake River Stampede in Nampa.

"Stampede for a Cure" has raised more than $300,000 to help provide mammogram services to underinsured women at no cost since 2006.

The special night of competition began with the popular mutton busting event.  Kids as young as five and six took their turn riding sheep to see who could hold on the longest. 

After the mutton busting event there was bareback bronc riding, steer wrestling, team roping, the stampede rope and run, saddle bronc riding, tie down roping, barrel racing, and bull riding.

World renowned cowboys and cowgirls from all over were in Nampa to compete in the 96th annual rodeo.

The Snake River Stampede is one of the top ten regular season professional rodeos in the entire country.

The rodeo runs through Saturday, July 23.
