Denny promoted his sponsors Mane N Tail and Suncoast Bedding while performing for the City League International Show Jumpers in Ocala earlier this evening. He provided a horseback rendition of the National Anthem, A mounted shooting act and his popular "Surfin' Cowboy" specialty act as well. A special thanks to Candy McCrary, Gary and Poppie Moe and their friend, Megan for helping us out tonight. Vic and Rebecca treated us very well and understand the behind-the-scenes needs of a specialty act performer - what a great event! Next Saturday, we compete in a mounted shooting match along with some of our students in Williston FL. Check out our website for event updates.

Here's a test promo tape we shot yesterday for one of my sponsors, Taylor's & Company (http://www.taylorsfirearms.com). Next Saturday, we're performing our "Surfin' Cowboy" specialty act for City League International Showjumpers, then another mounted shooting competition the following weekend. April will be a very busy month for us as we have a trick riding camp, entertainment at the Central Florida Fair, announcing at the CMSA Nationals in Tunica, and performing at the Equine Extravaganza (Stephanie Cons). A big thanks to all of our sponsors, Suncoast Bedding, Mane N Tail, Impact Gel, Taylor's & Co and many other supporting sponsors who help us take the best care of our horses and perform/compete with the best equipment.

Try this link if video does not work:
We had a busy day yesterday beginning with a promotional appearance at Seminole Feed in Ocala with "Dusty", one of my trick horses and roman riding team members. Seminole's customer appreciation day drew huge crowds who came to visit with us for a couple of hours INSIDE the store! Chester Weber from Live Oak was there with us along with his horse "Jamaica". We signed Suncoast Bedding promo pictures, then picked up my Mounted Shooting horse (and other half of my roman team) "Spanky" for a mounted shooting and roman riding exhibtion at the Florida Horse Park during their extreme cowboy challenge race. The video in this entry shows our first attempt at mounted shooting while roman riding at our home arena earlier last week - one of my many "don't try this at home" stunts... We often incorporate some kind of mounted trick shooting into our specialty acts. We're one of the few (if not the only) entertainers in the country that can feature live cowboy singing, tandem riding and driving, roman riding, trick horses, trick roping, whip artistry, mounted shooting and fire stunts all in one act with two horses...makes for a busy day at the "office"...but who likes to be boring?
