Those of you who have been following my progress in mounted shooting may have noticed that I pretty much took last year off. At least in the public view.
Behind the scenes I was actually shooting quite a bit…at a walk and a trot. Popcorn wasn’t quite sure that he wanted to participate in the the game. So I kept it slow and took all of last year (not to mention the year and a half prior to that) to finish building his confidence.
And here is a photo of the results! I finally moved up to a level 2! For those of you who are not familiar with the levels a rider begins at one and moves up to six. At this rate I calculate it will take me…..twelve year! Lol…
Hopefully we retain what we have learned a little better than that. Or at least I hope so! Here is a video of us at work.
