Gift Ideas for Your Favorite Cowboy Mounted Shooter
by Jennifer Burnell
It’s never too early to prepare for next year’s riding activities. What does your mounted shooter friend or family need this holiday?
After each event and practice, guns need to be cleaned; so how about gun cleaning supplies? Ear protection, gun cases, and gun bags are also thoughtful and useful gifts.
Our very traditional sport uses lots of leather —tack, chinks, and holsters —so leather conditioner is a must. Maybe consider accessories like spur straps or belts. Or go all out for some new gear.
The safety of our mounts is always a priority, so gift certificates towards a spring trailer tune-up or a truck tune-up is another idea.
Speaking of horses, local tack stores have a variety of horse splint and bell boots; bright colors are popular among shooters. Horse earplugs often need replacing… you can’t have too many!
