Utilising the ancient martial warfare skills of horse archery, taking your riding and partnership to the next level! or consider mounted archery as an activity for non-riders where the aim is structure, focus, ancient military skills and just being kick arse!
Horse archery is a growing national and international sport. historically, a number of countries incorporated horse archery for war, hunting and protection of livestock. just think about the mongols, huns, scythians, american first nation people or samurai to name a few.
Horse archery reconnects us to our primal inner fire or warrior identity. that part of us that we may have lost touch with through circumstance, disillusionment or trauma. it assists with facilitating emotional regulation and confidence building. this is a trauma-informed service.
Horse archery is fantastic because there are no specific age or specialised saddles required, it can even be undertaken by those who don’t ride – 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, it’s so much fun! we offer one-on-one individual lessons as well as group sessions; teaching thumb release, slavic 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. plus, the positive is that we can travel to you if you have you own horse!
Please note that you will require your own horse unless previously arranged, including your own helmet and riding gear. A sense of fun is an advantage!
