Can Children Ride and Shoot?
By: Jennifer Burnell
Are children allowed to participate in Cowboy Mounted Shooting? The answer is yes… and no. The “Wrangler” Class exists for children under 12 years of age. Wranglers ride the same pattern that the adults do, but they do not shoot real guns or blanks while riding the course. They may shoot toy cap pistols and engage each target as if they were shooting real blanks. After riding the courses, the Wranglers do shoot real 45 blanks at balloons, from the ground and under close adult supervision.
