The Top Mounted Shooters perform in a special All Star Shootout

Clovis, NM was buzzing in October with the arrival of Mounted Shooters from all over the country. This year, Western
Shooting Horse Magazine publisher Ken Amorosano added something special to Saturday Night's festivities; the first ever
Mounted Shooting All-Stars event! The Cowboy Mounted Shooters Team Registry was proud to be a vendor and sponsor at
the event.

Over 1,300 people gathered at the Clovis County Events Center and proved that, when done right, mounted shooting is
a spectator sport. With 19 of the most recognized and accomplished mounted shooters in the world gathered for a 3 stage
shootout, the night was sure to be a hit. With the voice and personality of Sugar Ray Quinn on the microphone the
audience was in good hands. When the lights dimmed and the riders made their entrance in the spotlight, the crowd
went wild. To add to the entertainment factor, "Wild Bill" (Gary Trichter) entertained the crowd on a horse drawn
stagecoach that entered the arena between stages and to warm up the crowd. When the dust settled and the results
were in, Kenda Lenseigne took home the top prize.

Everyone who was there will agree that one of the best parts of the event was what actually took place after the
competition was over. Each of the all-stars went on horseback into the arena with picture cards to sign autographs for
the audience. For about 45 minutes, shooters greeted audience members, had their pictures taken, signed autographs
and got people excited about the sport. It was at this moment that the sport of mounted shooting was taken to a whole
new level. The sport of Mounted Shooting now had superstars, approachable role models for young and old to look up to
and strive to become. This is what the event was all about.

Of course, Palm Springs WestFest proved this concept at our first rodeo in 2010!
