2015 South Dakota State Fair Cowboy Mounted Shooting Results

The Dakota Running Irons, Dakota Territory Mounted Shooters and the South Dakota State Fair are pleased to announce the results of 2015 State Fair Shoot.

Fourteen competitors from the tri-state area completed 56 runs on a perfect, sunny day at the Fair.  New members are joining this exciting sport, and even former S.D. Rodeo Queen, Melynda Sletten is giving it a try.  The neatest thing about cowboy mounted shooting is the overall family aspect of the sport – as mothers and fathers compete against daughters and sons, and even grandparents!

The event is thankful to the S.D. State Fair for their sponsorship, as well as Schucard GMC and Double D Western Wear.  Several of our competitors followed up this event with a trip to N.D. for more cowboy mounted shooting, and will be traveling to the championships in Amarillo, Texas.

Overall State Fair winners were: 1st-  Brett Borkowski, Wessington Springs; 2nd- Craig Shryock, Wessington Spring; 3rd – Joel Yandell, Westfield, Neb.  Congratulations to all.
