Darran and I were sitting in the stands at the 2008 NW Horse Expo. The day that changed our lives forever. As Katie rode by on her beautiful white Arab, Tasha, I felt like I was connected. For me, watching mounted archery was like falling in love for the first time. I just knew it was my thing. By the time we left the fairgrounds that day, we had met Lukas Novotny and ordered our first horse bows. It was just luck that we both were struck by this beautiful sport. When we got home we started work on our range. All these years later, it is still the love of our life. No matter what happens, we will be here shooting bows and arrows. Thanks to Katie Stearns, Holm Neumann and Lukas Novotny, we are mounted archers.
Archery in and of itself is a rewarding sport. When you add horses to the equation it becomes the most challenging and rewarding experience of a lifetime. Our trainers have learned from some of the most well respected horseback archers in the world. They are grateful for the opportunity to show others what I have learned and this sport so special. If you are interested in learning more about this unique style of archery please contact Roberta at 541-951-1171. Lessons start at $45 with your own equipment and $20 if you rent ours.
