Bianchi Pro Team Member Kenda Lenseigne Takes Home Five Overall Wins in Cowboy Mounted Shooting Competitions So Far This Year

ONTARIO, California-( Bianchi, a brand of The Safariland Group, today announced its professional team member, Kenda Lenseigne, and her horse Sparky, won five overall cowboy mounted shooting competitions in the first two months of 2017.

Kenda not only took titles in the ladies division, but also beat the men in competitions including:

  • “Border Wars,” Jan. 20–22, 2017, Queen Creek, Ariz.: Overall title time, for both men and women, in five combined stages was 73.803.
  • “Southwest Regionals,” Feb. 10–12, 2017, Queen Creek, Ariz.: Overall winner with a time of 69.637, placing above 211 competitors, both men and women, with the fastest time in three out of five stages.
  • “CMSA Winter U.S. Championship,” Feb. 15–18, Queen Creek, Ariz.: Overall Champion Cowgirl, placing above 231 competitors, both men and women, with a time of 72.388.
  • “Winter Range Championship,” Feb. 26, Phoenix, Ariz.: Overall title time in all five stages was 45.425, placing above 108 competitors, for both men and women.
  • “February Shooter Jackpot,” Feb. 27, St. Cloud, Minn.: Overall title time in three stages was 48.525, placing above 70 competitors, for both men and women.

“My horse is lightning fast,” said Lenseigne. “On every course, I have to change my guns after the first five targets, and am confident in my Bianchi holsters because they are reliable, lightweight and have the perfect fit. With just 7/100 of a second separating first and second place at this year’s Winter Championship, there was no room for error.”

“Kenda continues to set the bar extremely high,” said Scott Carnahan, vice president, equipment, Safariland. “She is a true competitor, and we are extremely proud of her start to the 2017 competitive season. Not only is Kenda an asset to Team Bianchi, she is an excellent brand ambassador and an inspiration to women looking to pursue their passions.”

Lenseigne competed in all five competitions with her Smokechaser™ Bianchi Cowboy holster. Although they will be competing locally every weekend in March, the next major competition for Kenda and Sparky is the CSMA National Championship in Tunica, Miss., April 12–15.

High performance horseback riding and shooting. And women. 200 pound men would over load the horse in that tight turn.
Not even Texas Ranger Walker could do what this modern, woman who doesn’t depend on Gloria Steinem for her liberation..
