First AQHA Cowboy Mounted Shooting To Be Held In March


The first 2012 AQHA Cowboy Mounted Shooting World Championship Show will be held in conjunction with the Pfizer AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse World Championship Show as part of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, March 1-3.  AQHA is teaming with the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association for this event. Cowboy mounted shooting, formed in 1991, is a fast-action timed event in which riders use two .45-caliber single-action revolvers each loaded with five rounds of specially prepared blank ammunition to pop balloons on a course in an arena.

Cowboy mounted shooting is an AQHA-approved event. The first AQHA cowboy mounted shooting points were earned at the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association National Championship on April 14, 2011, in Tunica, Mississippi. The qualifying period for the 2012 Cowboy Mounted Shooting World Championship ended at the CMSA World Championship, which was October 18-23, 2011, in Amarillo.

Open, amateur, Select and youth AQHA class divisions will be offered at the 2012 AQHA Cowboy Mounted Shooting World.
