The Centre of Horseback Combat
A Centre of Excellence for the Horseback Archery, Jousting and Stunt Riding.
This is where the excitement really begins.
So, if you are here, then you are probably looking for the next adventure on horseback......
Something different, exciting, using yourself and your horses to the very full of their abilities?
Well, here it is, for we offer tuition in Horseback Archery, Trick riding and Jousting to the brave, adventuresome and foolhardy!
The only centre in the U.K affiliated to the World Horseback Archery Federation and the British Horseback Archery Association.
We alone teach the true and traditional style of Horse Archery accepted at competition level around the world, as taught by the World Horse Archery Federation.
Internationally recognized gradings and competitions are regularly held at the centre.
Our students compete at National, European and World competition level.
With a 180 metre International standard Horse Archery run and our amazing specially trained horses we can show you how to go full tilt - the skills you require to ride the horse while handling shield, sword and lance, or indeed to release the reins entirely to free your hands to use the bow, once twice or three times whilst still - and this is the crucial bit - whilst still being in control!
We are fully licensed and insured.
Last year students have competed in Horseback Archery at the World Championships in Korea, Japan, Mongolia, Florida and at the European Championships (EOCHA) in Poland and Belgium - We also had a student compete at Al Faris in Jordan 2012 in front of the king himself!
Well done guys....keep flying the flag!
