Olympic gold medalist Kim Rhode brought a pocketful of medals to share with participants of the third annual Wild West Trap Shoot to benefit Carousel Therapeutic Riding Ranch.

Rhode is a double-trap and skeet shooter who has captured two Olympic gold medals, a silver and a bronze.

The ranch weekly serves more than 100 children and individuals with physical and other disabilities.

“Anything we can do for Carousel Ranch we do,” said Wayne Crawford, who headed up the Santa Clarita Concrete shooting team.

The trap shoot, a form of clay pigeon shooting, attracted 12 teams who were able to shoot three rounds of trap.

In addition to trap, other shooting events were also held, said Denise Tomey, executive director of Carousel Ranch.

“This is the first year we’ve included a pistol game where the winner will take home a new scope,” she said.

Participants were able to shoot a Beretta Px4.

Eric Stroh, chairman of the event, said the event was designed to be fun and keep everyone engaged in the action.

“We try to keep this event geared toward participants of all skill levels,” Stroh said. “We want it to be fun and light.”
Stroh said Benelli has been a big supporter of the event.

“Their support is fantastic,” said Stroh. “They have given us thousands of dollars of giveaways and prizes each year.”

Rhode said she was pleased to be able to attend the event and support Carousel Ranch.

“I’m honored to be here to show support for Carousel Ranch,” she said.
