Pain is temporary. Glory is forever. Especially in Mutton Bustin’.

Just ask 4-year-old Kennedi Sullivan. The little girl from San Antonio got the high score during the competition at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo on Monday night.

Kennedi was crying in pain after a rough dismount and was favoring her arm, even as she was presented with her championship buckle.

She went to the hospital and x-rays showed that she suffered a broken arm and she’ll be in a cast for four weeks while she recovers.

Her father, Justin Sullivan, tweeted this picture out:

Justin says that Kennedy is already looking forward to defending her title next year.
