I'm for sure going to contact her! And My goooooodness can that girl ride! New role model right there! I'm going to email her right away and ask about a clinic!! I'm SOOO excited now. I just gotta get my Arab better trained. She has a few flaws I need to fix before we can start this.

Haha, I know alot of people who wanted to do mounted archery due to Zelda. My boyfriend just took me to the Zelda orchestra concert even tho I've never played a Zelda game before. Afterwards, I'm itching to play a game. I'm going to start with that one, so I can get my archery on horseback practice in! (kidding, of course).

I can't find anyone around here that does mounted archery, so I'm thinking I'd have to teach myself. How do I get started?

Same here!

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.

I stated earlier about heavy draw weights causing damage to the shoulder, well the pros say go for it. I still don't think it's a good idea, but that's up to you whether you want to or not.

Some videos for you do watch.

Thanks for the links! I'll have to watch those when I get home, can't see youtube at work :( (at least I can get here!)

I'm planning on getting a low draw weight bow myself when/if I buy one.

His tutorials look really good! Since there isn't anyone here to compete with, I guess I'll get first place even if I'm self-taught!

Hey guys, sorry for the extended absence--just to confirm, drafts are not necessary at all! We like them because, yes, we are a jousting troupe (though we didn't originate with the SCA--we're an independent Order), and their temperament is also nice and unflappable. :) But mounted archery would historically have been performed almost exclusively with light horses.
