What is Cowboy Mounted Shooting?
Mounted shooting is a high speed, timed spectator sport in which the competitor who rides the fastest with the least amount of missed targets wins.
The rider must navigate through a course of ten targets. Targets are balloons and ammunition is black powder blanks for safety. The pistols are single action and .45 caliber. There are different levels for competitors based on age, mounted shooting experience and wins. There is a level for everyone, from the most experienced riders to those just starting out.
Mounted shooting requires skill in both horsemanship and shooting that is measured in the form of competitive events and is one of the fastest growing equestrian sports in the nation.
