Cowboy Mounted Shooting is one of the fastest growing and most exciting equestrian sports in America. It combines elements of Wild West Show exhibition shooting along with the skills of barrel racing, pole bending and reining while using two .45 caliber single action revolvers loaded with black powder blanks. The object of the game is to shoot ten balloon targets while riding your mount through a variety of challenging courses. It’s a timed sport in which the competitor who rides the fastest with the least amount of missed targets wins.

Cowboy Mounted Shooting is open to all levels of rider and all breeds of equine. Each Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association (CMSA) member enters the sport at the Class level 1 and moves up through the levels as experience and competition wins are achieved. These include Men’s, Ladies and Senior Classes 1-6, as well a Wrangler Class for the younger members. All CMSA sanctioned competitions. The number of points for each event varies and can accumulate to offer members year-end awards, prizes and contests entries.
