Humble Beginnings

Cowboy Mike did not own a horse until he was 50 years old. His daughter, Katryna, was in horseback riding lessons and competed in local Arizona events. Cowboy Mike purchased Katryna her first horse, AM War Steed aka Blue, a beautiful white Arabian horse. He was tired of paying a monthly stall fee, so he purchased his first ranch in Buckeye, Arizona. This is where he fell in love with horses and became a cowboy.

Discovering a Passion for Cowboy Mounted Shooting

Cowboy Mike started to take riding lessons with Gary BadDog Bennett. Gary taught Mike to learn to love riding, and consequently, Cowboy Mike was introduced to a sport called Cowboy Mounted Shooting. Cowboy Mounted Shooting combines the skill of horseback riding with marksmanship, and it quickly became Cowboy Mike’s passion.

Making a Difference in the World
