The fastest growing equine sport in the
is like barrel racing with balloons in between the
barrels. The rider shoots black powder blank
cartridges from .45 caliber pistols, at balloons,
and is scored on accuracy and time.
For this sport you will need
a desire to have fun and add some excitement to your life,
a pair of
single action revolvers,
a good horse (that's a GOOD
horse; not to be confused with expensive or registered)
and you HAVE to dress in authentic, pre 1900's attire! You
will get a chance to ride hard and shoot straight. It's a
sport the whole family can enjoy and it's all about having
a great time! You'll find the competitors real friendly
and eager to help each other. So pour yourself another cup
of Arbuckles, put your trigger finger on your mouse button
and ride the trails here to found out what all the
excitement is about.
