Whoa Podcast About Horses Horsemanship

Cowboy Mounted Shooting

Episode #027

What could be more fun the horses, guns, and balloons?  On this episode of the Whoa Podcast we explore Cowboy Mounted Shooting.   Essentially it is a rider wearing a holstered firearm riding through a course.  On the course are some balloons usually on stakes.  The rider must negotiate the course as fast as possible shooting the balloons.  As you can imagine, cowboy mounted shooting takes a broke horse and a steady hand.  We talk to Cathy and Johnnie Hendricks of the Roy Rogers Rangers, a shooting club in Southern California.  Cathy and Johnnie walk us through the basics of cowboy mounted shooting, the organization that runs competitions, and what you can expect at a competition.
