Collective training starts with a safety meeting, according to weather conditions and a number of participants we set the individual and team goals for that day.
We prepare the horse and the rider physically and mentally for horseback archery and mounted combat, using bows , spears , swords, whips, tomahawks and other props. Skills are build and developed from the ground, than from the falsemount and finally from a back of a horse. Our mind will slowly switch between riding and archery, but, by mastering the horseback archery exam and after many hours of hard training, this switching will become almost one. Centaur like, when you becoming one with your horse , bow and the target. We test our skills every time we meet and everybody gets a homework to improve their archery and riding skills.
Coaching, finding out if horseback archery is for you is available trough Skype, WhatApp, FaceTime, Messenger
