Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Centre
Queen Creek, Arizona - March 19th, 2017
The big Roots N Boots show came to Queen Creek at Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Centre last week and with all the great events going on one of my favorites had a spot on the list. Sunday the guns came out for the Arizona Cowboy Mounted Shooters Association. Fifty plus riders dressed in western attire took over the outdoor arena in style. These multi talented athletes cruising at blazing speeds through an obstacle course, shooting out balloons all while atop their beautiful horses. Might sound easy on paper, but when you actually see the event you will quickly change your mind. What always amazes me is how fast it all takes place. The riders jet through the stage in mere seconds all while firing their guns in the attempt to not miss a single balloon. If you haven't seen a Cowboy Mounted Shooting event, you really need to treat yourself. It really is a cool event to watch and for me personally an exciting photo opportunity. Here are some shots I took from the day.
