We hope some of you can join us for breakfast before heading to the event. We’ll be meeting at 8am at Lucky Roxy’s Café, at 405 W Palmdale Blvd. It’s the old Denny’s at Palmdale Blvd and the AV Freeway.Meet at the Vincent Hill Equestrian Center, 552 Sierra Highway, in Acton, at 9:45am for photo tips and a group photo at arena entrance. The event is free to the public to come watch. It should be a fantastic photo op for our upcoming Action competition in July.
Cowboys and cowgirls dressed in either traditional western style or old time style of the late 1800’s will be atop a 1,200 pound horse, galloping through a patterned course, with guns firing as they aim for balloon targets. This event combines elements of barrel racing and pole bending, all done while using two .45 caliber single action revolvers, loaded with 5 rounds each of black powder blanks to shoot ten balloon targets set up in various patterns. The contestant with the fastest accumulated speed wins, however seconds are added to their raw time for knocking over barrels, dropping guns, and missing targets.
