This weeks post goes through the CMSA pattern #1 also known as the Arrow. These are just 2 possibilities but they are by no means they only way to run this pattern. Choose whats best for you and your horse. Also, my friend Kelsey is running the pattern in this video. She graciously let me film her as I'm recovering from an injury. This was her third time ever doing mounted shooting and her first time riding Copper. She did a great job! Thanks Kelsey!
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.
