Kenda Wins Westerns Again

In a nail biting finish, Bianchi Cowboy shooter Kenda Lenseigne took another championship win at the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association (CMSA) “Scully Western US Championship” held in Las Vegas, NV July 31 – August 3. Lenseigne’s performance dominated over the women in her class and every man on the field as well. Coming into the last stage of the grueling three-day event, Lenseigne and fellow world-champion, Chad Little, were separated by less than 7/10 of a second. After Lenseigne ran first and laid down a “smoking” 17 second run, Little rose to the challenge but suffered a miss which ultimately cost him the title.

Before taking overall honors, Lenseigne, the Phoenix-based horse trainer, and her horse Justin, ran the fastest time while sporting the Bianchi® Smokechaser rig in Friday night’s sudden-death Eliminator. “It was wonderful to see and hear the roar of so many friends and clients in the stands,” said Lenseigne. “Justin and I are truly honored to have such a great support network, as well as some fantastic sponsors.”

The event also marked a preview of the latest Bianchi Cowboy holsters and gun belts, which Lenseigne designed in conjunction with the brand’s research and development department. “I’ve used Bianchi gun leather to win multiple championships and set world records. These new colors add some spectacular styling to a proven design.”  The new rigs are available for pre-order at and will begin launching at the end of 2013 throughout 2014 with each available for a limited time only.
