Imagine this: a talented young Dutch Warmblood gelding excels in the dressage arena, but every now and then he takes a walk on the wild side by competing with his owner in mounted shooting competitions.
Yes, we said mounted shooting, as in, firing a gun. From the back of your running horse.
Take your time.
Truth be told, that’s exactly what adult amateur Gretchen Walters of Sonora, Calif., does with her dressage mount, G-Force, a 5-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Contester II-Ploy).
