Fredericksburg, Texas (April 2018) – Cimarron Firearms is proud to announce a corporate partnership with the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association (CMSA) and a title sponsorship with the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) World Championship Rifle event for 2018/2019.
As part of the corporate partnership with CMSA, Cimarron will be the title sponsor for all six of the CMSA Championship Series Events in which contestants have the opportunity to win cash and prizes, including Cimarron firearms. The CMSA is an equestrian sport in which mounted contestants compete in timed events using two .45 caliber single-action revolvers loaded with five rounds of specially prepared blank ammunition. Contestants rides are timed and accuracy is also scored as the riders run a pattern or course in which they must eliminate a series of specially placed balloons. A variety of events are held throughout the year across the country for contestants of various levels, from beginner to pro.
The AQHA World Championships feature American Quarter Horse owners competing in Cowboy Mounted Shooting patterns. Contestants must qualify to participate by earning a predetermined number of points with World Championship titles awarded to the all-around winners in a variety of divisions. Cimarron is the title sponsor for the World Championship Rifle division for 2018/2019. The AQHA Cowboy Mounted Shooting World Championship was held March 14 – 16 at the Reliant Center in Houston, Texas.
“Cimarron Firearms is very proud to sponsor these CMSA and AQHA World Championship cowboy mounted events,” Mike Harvey, founder and CEO of Cimarron Firearms, said. “The horse is an important part of western culture and these events offer both visitor and contestants a chance to see the power and beauty in these animals as they work almost seamlessly with their riders.”
