Kenda Lenseigne is practically the face of Cowboy Mounted Shooting. In this sport, contestants maneuver horses through an obstacle course while firing two .45 caliber single-action revolvers at balloons set along the course. And don’t worry – the horses do wear hearing protection!
It is a high-speed, timed spectator contest in which the competitor who rides the fastest with the fewest missed targets wins. With a truck-load of national and world championships under her belt, it’s fair to say she is Cowboy Mounted Shooting’s most renowned and recognizable competitor! She works with many companies in both the equestrian and firearms industry in endorsements and product development, and features her own signature lines of holsters, guns, saddles, gear at her personal website.
Listen along as Kenda walks us through the world of Cowboy Mounted Shooting!

“Kenda has spent her life on the back of a horse. She started competing at the ripe old age of four and continued all throughout her childhood in both Western and English disciplines. After an apprenticeship in Texas with some of the country’s top cutting horse trainers, she was introduced to the sport of mounted shooting in California, where she qualified for the World Championship after only her 4th competition.
Since those early days, she’s developed a reputation as an accomplished trainer of both horses and people, won just about everything there is to win in the competitive arena and cultivated a thriving business dedicated to introducing others to her sport.
Her proudest accomplishment remains winning the title of Overall World Champion, becoming the first woman to best her male competitors. She did this riding Justin, a former trail horse that she nurtured from scratch, building him into a phenomenal equine athlete.
Kenda’s business is based in Arizona, which allows her to offer training year-round.”
