ABOUT HORSEBACK ARCHERY
Horseback Archery traditionally and historically originates from the people of the Steppe region, i.e. Mongols, Partians, Turks, Sythians, Sarmatians and Huns.
The military art later turned into an equestrian sport but was only really practised by a handful of people in countries such as Korea and Japan where their traditions lived on.
In Europe the modern day sport was brought to life by the Hungarian, Kassia Lajos. As a result of his dedication to the sport it has become popular in many more countries including Germany, Poland, France, Greece, U.S.A, Australia and Sweden to name just a few.
Join us on one of our many friendly and informative courses where you will receive safe & expert tuition on trained & experienced horses in true traditional Horse Archery techniques.
Our coaches are the most experienced Horse Archery coaches in the UK and have over 28 years of experience at our dediacted centre for Horseback Combat.
We teach mainly Korean style Horseback Archery using the ancient thumb draw technique but also practice Mamluk, Hungarian and Qabak here at the centre.
We have the only purpose made 150m sand track for Horseback Archery in the U.K and run National and International competitions here at the centre.
