Ahern shoots in competition at Rawhide

Ahwatukee Foothills resident Peggy Ahern loves to ride horses and shoot guns.

She is a member of Arizona Cowboy Mounted Shooters Association – The Old West Competing with Guns on Horseback. Cowboy Mounted Shooting, one of the fastest-growing equestrian sports in the nation, was founded in Arizona and represents the state’s Western heritage. The family-friendly sport consists of riders and shooters ranging from ages 12 up to 75. In this fast-action timed event using single-action revolvers with specially-prepared blank ammunition, riders shoot balloons set in a variety of patterns. The sport is spectator friendly with participants wearing period Western clothing.

Ahern will participate in a Cowboy Mounted Shooting competition starting at 10 a.m. Feb. 21 at Rawhide at Wild Horse Pass, 5700 W. North Loop Road, Chandler.
