Roman Riding, Trick Shooting

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?
