One of fastest growing and most exciting equestrian sports in America. It combines elements of exhibition shooting with the skills of barrel racing, pole bending and reining, while using two (2) .45 caliber single- action revolvers loaded with black powder blanks. The object is to shoot ten (10) balloon targets while riding through a variety of challenging courses. It is a timed sport, where the competitor who rides the fastest with the least amount of missed balloon targets wins. It is a family oriented sport for all ages dedicated to keeping our Western heritage alive!! It teaches balance between horsemanship, firearm accuracy, safety and plain old fun.
