Mounted Shooting is one of the fastest growing equestrian sports in the nation. The object of the sport is to shoot ten balloon targets while riding through a variety of challenging courses using specially loaded blank cartridges fired from Old West-style single-action revolvers. It’s a high-speed, timed spectator sport in which the competitor who rides the fastest with the least amount of missed targets wins.
Mounted Shooters of America is a membership organization that promotes and produces events and educational programs. The MSA has clubs nationwide and promulgates the rules and tracks the competitors and horses achievements, while hosting events such as the Colt Championship Series and providing the highest individual payouts in the history of mounted shooting.
WestWorld is located at 16601 N. Pima Rd, Scottsdale, AZ. For more information call the WestWorld at (480) 312-6802. For MSA details visit www.newmsa.com.
