Team Safariland’s Kenda Lenseigne Sets Two World Records at The CMSA National Championship
ONTARIO, Calif. – Safariland, a company with a rich heritage in the law enforcement and sporting markets for 50 years, is thrilled to congratulate veteran Bianchi® team member Kenda Lenseigne following yet another promising effort at the 2016 Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association National Championship in, Tunica, MS last weekend.
Riding her up-and-coming mare Sparky, Lenseigne collected a pair of stage wins, in commanding style, by setting two world records, both of which took place on the same day. Following three days of clean fast stages, Lenseigne sat a-top of the leader board with a 0.7 second advantage overall, but was ultimately edged out of top place due to a range equipment malfunction on the last stage of the match. Coming in at a close second and displaying her signature sportsmanship, Lenseigne said, “Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you. I’m happy as my gear worked flawlessly throughout the entire week and my little red rocket pony was on fire, proving to everyone in the sport that although she is small, she is mighty.” Lenseigne’s world record runs, in which she is using her Bianchi Cowboy Smokechaser™ holster rigs, can be viewed on Safariland’s website by visiting the Bianchi Cowboy KL Signature Collection page.
Lenseigne is a six-year Bianchi team member and has collaborated with Safariland to design the Bianchi Cowboy line, a dominating product force in the sport of mounted shooting.
“We couldn’t be more proud of Kenda and Sparky. It is a joy to watch the two of them in-sync and working together at these record-setting speeds,” said Scott Carnahan, Vice President, Equipment Marketing for Safariland and Bianchi. “Congratulations, Kenda and thank you for being an incredible ambassador for our brand and the sport.”
