Denny Chapman earns dual titles at SASS Florida State Mounted Shooting Championships

Denny Chapman won the titles of Mounted Rifle Shooting Champion and Extreme Mounted Shooting Champion at the Florida SASS Mounted Shooting State Championships held at Canterbury Showplace Arena, November 20-21, in Newberry FL. Mounted Rifle competition is a timed-event consisting of shooting five targets with a single action revolver, then shooting five targets with a rifle from horseback on the run - often turning the horse loose and steering with seat and legs only for the rifle portion of the course. Extreme Mounted Shooting involves shooting ten targets with two single action revolvers while jumping a course and negotiating unusual obstacles. Denny is a mounted shooting horse trainer and clinician, and mentioned that at least 14 of the 63 competitors at the event had either trained with him, sent horses to him for training or attended one of his mounted shooting clinics. "I was very proud of my students and the horses I've worked with at the State Championships this weekend," Chapman said, "It was the first sanctioned match for a few of them and they all made me very proud." Chapman promoted his sponsors at the awards ceremony Sunday, giving away products from several of his sponsors, including Pennfield Feeds, Larsen Farms Hay, Mane N Tail and Suncoast Bedding. "I've got all the best products to give me and my horses the edge we need to stay on top of our game," Chapman said. He recently added Buckaroo Leather Products to his growing line of sponsors, and is on the Taylor's & Co Firearms Pro-Staff having co-designed "Runnin' Comanchero" mounted shooting rifle he used to win his championship title with this weekend. He also endorses Rod Kibler gun leather and Impact Gel Saddle Pads. Denny Chapman is a Champion Mounted Shooting Competitor and Horse Trainer, Wild West Entertainer and Professional Media Host.
