A native Australian, Tammy Sronce resides in Stephenville, TX and is a multiple World and National Champion in the discipline of Cowboy Mounted Shooting. Sronce is also the host of the Western Radio Show, a weekly podcast which is part of the Horse Radio Network.
Sronce is a two-time CMSA World Champion Cowgirl, a two-time CMSA National Champion Cowgirl, a two-time High Point National Champion, a National Rifle Champion and a Cowgirl Hall of Fame nominee. Sronce claims Overall Championship titles from both the Western and Eastern U.S. Championships. Sronce is also a past World Record holder and has won the Texas State and South Central High Point Championship for 8 consecutive years.
Sronce was the first ever cowgirl competitor in CMSA to reach the Level 6 status, the highest level of competition in the CMSA. She was the first cowgirl to win an Overall National High Point Championship and the only person to sweep overall titles in all four major CMSA championships in one season. Sronce is also the only cowgirl in history to win an Overall CMSA National Rifle Championship against the cowboy competitors.
January, 2012 Tammy sustained a brain injury from a collision with a drunk driver. She was unable to compete in 2012 and returned to the competition arena in July, 2013 after a surgery to correct a nerve condition and extensive rehabilitation. Tammy then suffered another setback when her saddle broke riding at home. She suffered three broken ribs and a punctured lung from the fall.
But, Tammy persevered and returned to the arena yet again, competing in more than 20 competitions last year. She also won numerous local, state and regional championships in 2014, including the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame Shootout in Fort Worth, Texas and most recently, the CMSA Regional Championships in June.
Tammy has been instrumental in helping bring helmets into the western competition arena. She was awarded the Craig Ferrell M.D Equestrian Safety Award for her promotion of riding helmets by Riders4Helmets and and she continues to inspire other riders by her story each and every day.
“In a sport that is distinctly western, I was looking for a stylish helmet that would not only have a modern look but one that was extremely comfortable” says Sronce. “In a fast timed event like mounted shooting, my Troxel helmet gives me the confidence to perform at my best.”
