TOPEKA (KSNT) – Rusty Walker, a longtime equestrian in the Topeka area, won an American Paint Horse Association World Championship in mounted shooting on July 11th in Fort Worth, Texas.
“Mounted shooting is a timed event where you pop balloons with a 45 caliber pistol on horseback. It’s barrel racing with guns and targets,” said Rusty Walker. “The World Championship is for the American Paint Horse Association. My dream was to go to the World Show and just get the picture. We went down there and did our best and wonderful things happened.”
Walker said she’s been doing mounted shooting for 10 or 11 years.
