As a mounted shooter I know that you are constently looking for ways to improve and become better. Most competitive people are. Hopefully this drill from World Chamption Kenda Lenseigne will help you on the pasth to greatness. It was published in Western Shooting Horse Magazine in 2013 (this magazine has since changed it's name to Western Horse and Gun).
This is a drill that I come back to time and time again. It's simple and has lots of great elements for both you and your horse. Hopefully you find it helpful. If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment below.
Courtney brings over 25 years of horse experience to the arena. She has spent time in the show ring competing with Saddlebreds in show pleasure and equitation. While competing in that discipline she had several undefeated years with too many championships to list. She then made the transition into rodeo where she competed in barrel racing, team roping, breakaway roping, and goat tying. Courtney found her true passion when she tried Cowboy Mounted Shooting. After just one ride she was hooked. Since then she has won State and Regional buckles, qualified for the CMSA World Championships several times, and placed 7th in the world in 2014.
