There isn't anyone that does it where I live either. The closest I think is about 4 hours away somewhere off in PA.
I plan on learning how to shoot a bow and arrow first. I saw some recurve horse bows for like 250. I'd like to purchase a used one first but I'll see what I find when I'm ready to buy.
I'm going to take an archery lesson or two from a bow-hunting place. It may not be the same but it'll give me a feel.
Once I can hit a target from the ground proficiently, I'm going to get my horse use to me shooting while he's nearby. So he gets use to the noise. I may even throw a few arrows off his back so he's use to that. I'll carry the bow around with me everywhere with him most likely, so he gets use to it brushing his sides or butt or whatever it hits.
Thennnn we'll start at a walk.. a very slow walk. Maybe even someone leading, lol.
Or at least, that is my plan.
But before the horse, must get a bow and learn how to shoot it. I see lots of practice in my future.
