A day of mounted shooting!

The Dixie Rough Riders of west TN had a competition this past Saturday.
(sorry for the watermark - I resized and watermarked all of these for my website and I didn't want to go through and resize the originals.)

A good friend of ours is in the CMSA hall of fame. His wife shoots bareback as a native American. They aren't as active as they used to be, but I still love watching a demonstration.

That looks like so much fun, I think it is also great experience for the horse and rider both. Great pictures and thanks for sharing.
