July is under way!
Our next events are back-to-back matches in Barre, MA July 21 & 22.
We held a demonstration for the New Boston, NH Fourth of July celebration, and it was hot, hot, hot! Thanks to those who persevered and put on a great show.
The NH State Championship drew a record 48 riders from throughout the Northeast and Canada! Congratulations to Overall Champion Rob Baratta, Reserve Champion Steve Armato, Overall Cowgirl Mandy Whitney, and Reserve Cowgirl Dina Baratta. Full class winners were Emily Daly (L1), Molly Hayes (L2), Molly Wilson (L3), Mandy Whitney (L4), Alan Green (SM1), and Craig McCoskery (Shotgun). 3 of these moved up to their next class! Emily to L2, Alan to SM2, and Mandy to L5! We welcomed Dick Moody (who introduced many of us to this sport when he was the president of the NH Cowboy Mounted Shooters) and Ken Jardine (visiting from Canada). With Ken’s encouragement and guidance, 5 riders joined him in the first Cavalry class (video!) to run in the New England in quite a long time.
Our day-after-the-championship match induced a lot of riders to stay for the weekend, and we had 36 compete for 4 more stages. Congratulations to Overall Champion Coltin Omasta, Reserve Champion Shad Smith, Overall Cowgirl Mandy Whitney, and Reserve Cowgirl Wendy Gibbons.
