Balloon Setting Fund Raiser

Get a front row seat at an exciting equestrian sport and make money.

What is Cowboy Mounted Shooting?

Cowboy Mounted Shooting is a fast action equestrian sport where contestants navigate their horse, through a course with ten balloon targets and attempt to pop all the targets.  The contestant uses two .45 caliber single action pistols and specially prepared blank ammunition to engate the balloon targets.

What would our club be doing?

The broken balloon targets need to be replaced after each contestant's run.  Your club would be responsible for making sure the course has fresh balloon targets after each run.  All the necessary equipment is provided by the Mid-Ohio Marauders.

  • Put balloons on balloon sticks

  • Blow up balloons with air compressor

  • Replace balloon targets after each run

  • Clean up the balloon fragments before the arena is tilled
