So, you want to learn more about mounted shooting.....
MOUNTED SHOOTING is one of the nation’s fastest growing equestrian sports. Each contestant in this fast action event is equipped with two .45 caliber single action revolvers, each loaded with five rounds of special blank ammunition. Courses of fire are set in a variety of patterns. The first five balloons are set in a random pattern and the last five balloons are set in a straight line known as a rundown. After the shooter has fired the fifth shot he holsters the empty revolver and proceeds to and turns around a barrel at the far end while drawing his second revolver. He then engages the last five balloons on the rundown. Scoring is based on the elapsed time plus a five second penalty for each missed balloon or knocked over barrel. A course of fire can take between 20 and 30 seconds.
We have a new horse/new shooter clinic planned for the spring, see events page for more information. This is a great way to get introduced to the different guns, holsters and how to get your horse used to sounds of gun fire. We offer both ground instructions and riding.
If you can't make the clinic, contact us and we can give you more information on this great sport!!
