Come and join us for an introduction to your challenge - in a half day course you will get to grips with the techniques of Horseback Archery in a ground session on our range, learning to shoot a horsebow in the traditional style - the thumb draw, blind nocking, nocking on the move, speed nocking and loosing. Then it’s off to meet your warhorses on our 150 metre sand Horse Archery run - to put all these techniques together and ride to glory!
Each step is mastered before we move on - in walk, then in trot, then canter if you are a capable and confident rider and have picked up the archery technique and have been assessed to be safe to shoot at canter from our horses.
You will work as an individual up on the track and progressed up through the paces if you are assessed to be safe with the weapons and have mastered the basic technique of shooting from horseback before moving up a gear.
