    I follow her postings closely on FB. Very interesting. She is also a hunter, using mostly Uberti long guns in traditional chambering. She is also an accomplished horse handler and breeder.

    Kenda reminds me of my Niece, Rachel, who shot this moose in Alaska a few years ago when she ran the Kodiak Island weir station (for spawning salmon) and kept the bears away with rubber bullets.

    Inspector, She and her husband just had a baby girl. They are back in Virginia working at boring jobs. I think they are still eating moose meat.

    Here is an article I wrote for The Rundown almost 10 years ago:

    Preparing for a Perfect Run – Some Great Guidance from Kenda Lenseigne
    by
    Ed Beesley (Photo credits to Lucinda Wood)

    In a recent discussion with Brady Carr and Phil Spangenberger, they whole heartedly agreed that a column dedicated to sharing the top competitor’s tips on how to improve one’s ability to compete and have fun seemed like it was worth pursuing. I am pleased that I was asked to write this column and even more pleased that the first competitor who will be sharing with us is Kenda Lenseigne. Kenda is a great person, competitor, teacher, trainer and a now our current reigning world champion. At the Sundowner 2009 World Championship held in October, 2009 in Amarillo, Texas, Kenda was the first ever woman to win the high overall in a CMSA World Championship. Additionally, Kenda won the Colt Eliminator and the Wrangler Pro event giving her a perfect sweep. I caught up with Kenda in Fredericksburg prior to her heading to the 2009 AQHA World Championship Show in Oklahoma City and asked her about her recent win. She was very humble about her accomplishments but without hesitation answered that the one key training habit that helped her take home the championship buckle in Amarillo was her mental approach to the sport and leveraging the power of positive thinking.
    Kenda has a lot of natural ability and actually started riding before she could walk but that alone did not get her to the top of her game. Kenda stated that when you compete at a level 6 all of the competitors have great horses, and are both terrific horseman & horsewomen who know how to shoot fast, but the one who makes a plan, perfectly executes it, and stays mentally focused to the end is the one who has the real advantage. Kenda always has a plan, and her plan this year was simple: “I will win high overall at the CMSA Worlds this year”; easy to say but with all of the variables in our sport and in any one particular event, not always the easiest thing to accomplish. Kenda also said that it is great for people to set very lofty goals but there is no reason you cannot have intermediate goals as well that are perhaps more manageable and attainable e.g. I want to become a more consistent shooter and to place in the top three of every major match I attend. One of the key points Kenda stressed to me was that unless you actually take the time to write down your goal it is still a thought or a dream; the minute you see it in writing it takes on a new meaning. Once you actually declare a goal you can then assess your potential to achieve it and reaffirm the steps you need to take to help you realize the goal. A few of the great tips that Kenda shared with me to help you accomplish your goals include:
    · Revisit and evaluate your goal often; adjust if necessary
    · Make your goals realistic and attainable.
    · Avoid negative thinking – if you think a balloon is too tough to hit and you think you may miss, you just might end up with that self full filling prophecy and miss. Instead tell yourself that you are capable of hitting it because it is just another balloon.
    · Once you have prepared for your run, sit back and listen to the shooters as they engage the course and visualize your approach
    · Do not watch the five riders in front of you; close your eyes and run the course perfectly in your mind – see every one of the balloons pop as you hear the shots.
    · Ride for yourself – do not try to beat other peoples times
    · Compete to your potential for the entire match; from the first to the last stage. Instead of thinking of shooting a clean match, think of shooting one stage, one balloon at a time.
    · Remember that we are more capable of achieving greatness than most of us think
    I believe that one of the best aspects of Kenda’s approach is that regardless of your skill level or your horse’s ability you can use these concepts to maximize your ability to compete and to improve. Perfect practice makes for perfect runs and I truly believe that the positive mental approach to the sport can have a profound positive impact on your ability to compete and have fun. Keep focused and ride hard.

    As an aside, I just now got a email from Pioneer Gun Works saying he will be smithing and selling short stroked revolvers. (I have no connection with his business)
