Talented equestrian marksmen—and women—brought the Tejon Equestrian Center to life May 3-5 for the California State Mounting Shooting Finals competition.

Hosted by the California Peacekeepers, the South Pacific Region the event lasted three days and featured top shooters from California, Arizona and Nevada.

Dylan Lawson of Valley Center captured the Overall Championship, and his sister Rylee was Reserve Overall Champion and the top Ladies Division rider. Rounding out the family affaire was Kenny Lawson, who was the Open Rifle Champion.

“This was one of the most fun competitions I have ever participated in,” said Dylan, who rode his 9-year-old Quarter Horse, Leos Carrisa MR L 36 (aka “Clifford”). “There was a lot of attention to detail and the buckles are great! I am very excited to have shared this win with my sister, too.”

His dad broke and trained the gelding, and Dylan has finished him. Dylan and Clifford are also the current Overall Arizona State Champion.

Chris Dye of Escondido took the Limited Shotgun Championship, and Ken Monson of Acton captured the Limited Rifle title.

Taking the Reserve Men’s Overall Championship was Arizona’s Trevor Hirschberg, whose wife, Carrie, took the Open Shotgun Championship.

Kenny Lawson will host beginner clinics in August and September at Silver Dollar Ranch.
