Mounted shooting is more than just staying on
top of the horse and shooting balloons. Our goal is to teach
you the skills needed to become the best mounted shooter you can
be. We will probably begin by introducing you to the basics of
cowboy mounted shooting and gun safety. We will provide
horsemanship instruction aimed at improving your riding and
communication skills with your horse, offer corrections to your
shooting technique and we will also teach course management
skills that will result in your horse taking fewer steps to
better place you to make an accurate shot.
How quickly you improve as a mounted shooter will depend upon
the amount of time and practice you are willing to devote to the
sport. We have the following
One hour: $50 your horse and
ammo; $75 our horse and ammo.
½ day (3-4 hours): $150 our
horse or yours. We provide ammunition
Full Day (6-7 hours): $200 our
horse or yours. We provide ammunition.
For a group of at least five people, we can
provide a two day clinic either at our
arena or at one you provide. While we can be flexible in clinic
instruction, based on the skill level of the participants, a
general provide the following:
Planning a run to improve performance
Improving accuracy and speed.
Exercises designed to improve horse’s
athleticism and response time.
Exercises to improve gun changes.
Evaluation of types of equipment and
recommendations for what will work best for the rider/horse
with a minimum of 5 riders plus all expenses.
Electric: $10/night for trailers at our
