The World of Mounted Shooting is the most ambitious showcase of Mounted Shooting ever. For two centuries, this sport has existed as a competitive display. League circuits have developed in recent decades. But it is The World of Mounted Shooting that is elevating the spectacle into a full entertainment event on equal tier as the great American rodeo. Not since the old Wild West Shows of the late 19th century has anything come close to the World of Mounted Shooting.

 History: 

Mounted Shooting has been on the road for some two centuries. It debuted in the peacekeeping camps of the old U.S. Calvary, as men first trained to carry their pistols and honor their horses should they need to command both into the smoke of battle. The great American cowboy carried the tradition into the dusty territories of the West. The frontier closed; outposts became towns, perimeters became States. Mounted Shooting was now American folklore and the armed men and women on horseback were its heroes. The unfading tradition found its famous stage with the Wild West Shows of the late 19th century.

Contemporary Mounted Shooting is ingrained in the essence of the Wild West Show. It is a spectacle that does not look back timidly upon the U.S.A’s past. In Mounted Shooting, a lost part of the American way of life is immortalized: the memory of an open frontier and the courage to go out there.
