Mounted Archery Horse Certification

In mounted archery, our horses play a huge roll in how well we shoot and how much fun we can have in this sport.  So much time goes into training a good horse, no matter what equestrian discipline you are involved in.  Mounted archery is no different.  At RMA we do our best to provide a safe riding environment for all our members.   In order to participate in any mounted archery activities, you must be a current MA3 and RMA member, waivers must be signed and your horse certified.  We recommend that all members wear helmets whenever riding and  practice basic horse etiquette at all times. To schedule a certification or if you have any questions, please contact Roberta Beene at 541-826-8232.
