The most important winners on the year may arguably be most improved and the wranglers. A shooter that started in the middle of the season, but is improving by leaps and bounds is Mr. Mitchell Kramer. Watch out, this boys gonna be tough to beat!! This years wrangler champions always competitive to the bitter end in the arena, but best friends outside of the arena. Congrats to Kari Lewis this years wrangler champion and Taylor Fischbeck the Reserve Wrangler Champion.
Each year we give one other very special award and it's called the Dirt Dobber Award. We always keep track of each member that falls off their horse during a shoot for the season and then the board votes on whom was the best. This year the coveted award went to Miss Taylor Fischbeck. Probably one of the best riders in our club, but sometimes things just happen and off you come!! Sure glad you were ok!!
.What is Cowboy Mounted Shooting? Cowboy Mounted Shooting is one of the nation's fastest growing equestrian sports. Mounted contestants compete in this fast action timed event using two .45 caliber single action revolvers each loaded with five rounds of specially prepared black powder ammunition. Courses of fire are set in a variety of patterns. The first half (5 targets) of a course of fire will vary with each go and requires the horse and rider to stop, turn, change leads and accelerate rapidly. The second half (5 targets), called the "run down", is a straight course with targets set at 36 foot intervals. Find out more at www.CowboyMountedShooting.com.
