The Cowboy Sports Association (CSA) is a national organization which was created to promote the sport of Mounted Shooting through its affiliates.  Our focus is on the support of our affiliates through affordability, recognition, consistency and exceptional communication between the association and its members.

So what is Mounted Shooting?

This exciting competition reminds spectators of cowboys of the old west!  Armed with two single action .45 caliber pistols, the competitor speeds through a course designed to test their horsemanship skills and shooting ability – all put together.  While navigating through a course, the rider must shoot at 5 targets with one gun before re-holstering and pulling out their next gun for the last 5 targets.  Scoring is based on speed, accuracy and following the course of fire correctly.  Targets are balloons and ammunition is black powder blanks for safety.  There are levels for competitors based on mounted shooting experience and wins, even entry levels (Cowpoke and Apprentice) for competitors on lead line or anyone just learning to put it all together.  We also offer all members a Shooting Horse certification program to gain recognition for their horse in the sport of Mounted Shooting. 

The Cowboy Sports Association offers something for everyone!
