Cowboy Mounted Shooting is 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.

The CMSA’s Championship Series are held with the competitors riding as part of “Team Duke,” on behalf of the John Wayne Cancer Foundation, in order to raise awareness in their fight to cure cancer. The Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association is the governing organization of the sport and promulgates the rules and tracks the competitors of more than 100 affiliated clubs.
