Arrow Want to start-How?

I own an Appaloosa that I can't stand up on and crack a bull whip on. I've also shot a 22 off his back and killed a bunny. He's somewhat bomb proof and I want to start Mounted Shooting. How do I take this up?

I'm not a mounted shooter myself, but I see that you are from Florida, so I would check out the Florida Peacemakers facebook page.

Some clubs offer a new shooter clinic. They teach you how to handle the gun safely and help you get your horse used to the noise and smoke. They also set up stages for you to practice on. I went to some shoots and talked to a lot of people. If one is near you they can help you get started.

How to these mounted shooters practice range safety when they are shooting mounted? Do they have equine hearing protection? I have hearing damage from my Army days, and if I was a horse, I would not want a gun going off near my ear.

They make equine ear plugs. We use to sell them in the tack store I worked in.

Hello! I'm new to the forum - this is my first post . I'm looking to try mounted shooting with my 15 yr. Old QH that I use for breakaway roping in high school rodeo ( he can also be used for cutting) or my 10 yr old team roping horse. The only saddle I have that would be light enough is a simco trail saddle ( my ropers and cutters are pretty hefty) and I was wondering if I could shoot out of that saddle or will I have to get a new saddle ?

Is the simco saddle a leather or synthetic?

For someone starting out, most clubs would not give you a problem over a synthetic saddle at local match or clinic. I am rusty on my rules, but I believe that CMSA is the only organization with a "leather or leather looking" tack rule. Not sure I have ever seen that rule enforced. Check with the club you are shooting with. CSA allows clubs to set their own clothing/tack guidelines. MSA might have some flexibility.

If the saddle fits that horse and is safe, there is no reason it wouldn't work for you to try mounted shooting.
