Cowboy Mounted ShootingŪ
The fastest growing equine sport in the country!
Mounted Shooting 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 need a desire to have fun and add some excitement to your life, a pair of .45 caliber 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'll 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.
