 Cathie and Ruger at Ma State Shoot 8-24-2014  2nd place Ladies level 2

22nd out of 39 riders. Not bad for only attending 2 or 3 shoots per year.

Cowboy Mounted Shooting Demo, Saturday, November 5, 2005
Uxbridge, MA

In keeping with the theme of my clothing I rode bareback the first stage

Durring the first stage when Cachina zigged and I zagged, I was lucky to stay astride, but opted to put the saddle back on. I admire Native American's riding skill.


Although I normally ride in a Dr. Cooks
bitless bridle, I opted for a rope halter
for authenticity.

This is was our first time shooting in public. This was a demonstration only! Not an official match, we were greenhorns to the sport.

"Thanks to Jody Joyce for taking some beautiful shots"


 Cachina placed 1st in her first 3 competitions as a L1 

We moved up to a Ladies Level 3 in "08" our third year in the sport.
