Utah's Mounted Thunder

Cowboy Mounted Shooting Club

Ringing in the New Year with a Bang!

It is an ancient belief that ringing in the New Year by banging pans, lighting fireworks and shooting guns dispels evil spirits and brings an abundance of good luck for the coming year! If there is any truth to this tradition, Utah's Mounted Thunder will have a very prosperous year! We raised the roof during the first shoot of the Winter Series, held at the Duchesne's County Fairground on January 2nd. Thanks to Billie Henderson and all participants for supporting UMT and getting this year off to a great start!
