August 25th & 26th, 2023: Wyoming Desperados Mounted Shooters, Afton Fairgrounds.

The Wyoming Desperados is a group of folks dedicated to the sport of mounted shooting, which has been described as "barrel racing with a pair of guns".

Unlike barrel racing or pole bending, mounted shooting features a variety of different patterns and contestants don’t know which pattern they’ll have to run until the morning of the match. This means their horse can’t memorize the pattern, so the rider and horse have to be in constant communication.
