There’s something spectacular about mounted shooting. It’s probably the combination of galloping horses and firing guns. Either way, this discipline requires precision, stamina and strong horsemanship skills. These riders are super impressive!

Practice makes perfect for this cowgirl! @bridgetmichele_ participates in CMSA & UMS mounted shooting.

And POP goes the balloon! Balloons were injured in the making of these pictures.

This all happens in a mere 8 seconds!

Wow, how impressive is this run.

This cowgirl stepped up the ante with a shotgun, as if the sport wasn’t hard enough!

Believe it or not, you don’t have to be an expert rider to try mounted shooting. Give it a go!
