The Moriarty Quick Draw shoots were great fun. We had beautiful weather and a great arena. We had a Quick Draw competition after the mounted shooting on Saturday. Contestants put their horses up and competed to see who had the fastest gun hand in the New Mexico Territory! Shooters stepped across the timer line, drew one gun and shot 5 balloons set up in a special target, holstered their gun and stepped back acoss the timer line to stop the clock. Donny MacDougall took the top honors in the Quick Draw. Mounted shooting results for Day 1: Overall was Donny MacDougall, Mens Reserve was Bob Osrenga, Ladies Overall was Renee Robichaud, Ladies Reserve was Ta-Willow Romero. Day 2: Overall was Donny MacDougall, Mens Reserve was Bob Ostrenga, Ladies Overall was Renee Robichaud and Ladies Reserve was Kay Rivers.
A fan, 8 year old Braden Fuentes of Artesia, drew this for Pam after watching the Smokin' on the Pecos shoot in Artesia. Hopefully we'll see Braden riding with us in our wrangler program some day! Thanks for the great picture, Braden.
