Iron Sixes Horsemanship is named after the six-shooters that were once known as a symbol of the West. A time when a fast horse and accuracy with a pistol was a matter of survival. Best friends and professional horsemen, Travis Smith and Benjiumen Denny join forces to start Iron Sixes Horsemanship. Dedicated to the sport of Cowboy Mounted Shooting, Travis and Ben are currently CMSA TM Level Five cowboys. Over 20 a combined 20 years, they have diligently worked to obtain their level of success and admit to making every mistake in the book along the way. Travis and Ben believe in giving back to the horse industry. They have developed a horsemanship-based curriculum and clinic format, designed to give others the tools to be successful mounted shooters. Their clinics are geared for all levels of horsemen, from the newcomer or helping current competitors achieve the next level.
