(Lander, Wyo.) – This morning, competitors from around the west converged on the Lander Rodeo Grounds to take part in a mounted shooting competition.
The Mounted Shooters of America-sanctioned event is being filmed for inclusion in a reality TV show pilot focused on today’s cowboys.
“That’s the goal of all this: to show the modern way of the cowboy,” said Dan Schultejann. Schultejann is a Lander businessman working with Cowhorse Productions on the pilot episode.
Schultejann told the shooters and the small crowd at 10 a.m. that shooting for the show began a little more than a week ago. Planning has been in the works for months. Read more of the background on the project here. The competition was expected to last until about 1 p.m.
