Horse Archery

Horse Archery

Have you ever wanted to do something a little different with your horse? There are so many different equestrian disciplines for people to choose from. Some are very well known, others not so much. Horse archery is a growing national and international equestrian sport. Historically, a number of countries used horse archery for war, hunting and protection of livestock. Just think about the Mongols, Scythians or Samurais of Japan to name a few.

Horse archery is fantastic because there are no specific age or specialised saddles required, as long as participants are safe. Removing a rider’s reliance on the reins and assisting with the development of an independent seat has excellent benefits for other equestrian pursuits as well. Plus, the positive is that we can travel to you!

We offer one-on-one individual lessons as well as group lessons, teaching both thumb release and Mediterranean release (3 fingers) shooting techniques. Those new to horse archery start with a Mediterranean release. We supply all the archery equipment for beginners. Please note that you will require your own horse unless previously arranged as well as your own helmet and riding gear. A sense of FUN is an advantage 😉
