A 6-year-old Abilene boy is making a name for himself in the world of youth bull riding.

Brody Harris has been competing at the Youth Bull Riders World Finals all week at the Taylor County Expo Center. He has been competing with a sheep and on Saturday, he made it to the final round of the event. Later in the day Harris was crowned world champion in his division of mutton busting.

Harris says he has been practicing for the event since January.

"I put on a vest, helmet, chaps and some riding boots," says Harris. "It feels good and I feel proud."

Hundreds came from across the country since July 30th to participate in the series of competitions this week.
