What is Mounted Achery?

Mounted archery is a historical technique of hunting and warfare. The rider controls the horse with seat, legs, and voice while shooting arrows with a bow. Now it has gained popularity as a sport. The most popular set up involves a 2m wide by 90m long track that the horse follows while the archer shoots at a variety of targets. Instinctual archery is important to achieve the accuracy and speed required to complete the patterns.
