Requirements for horseback archery are any one of the following:

  • Riders hold a BHAA certificate
  • Riders must be able to ride in walk and trot 
  • Riders must be able to hit the archery target 10 out of 20 shots

If you do not meet any of these requirements, we offer lessons with Dimitri who will help you to acquire them.

“It was quite scary at first riding with no hands, but Dimitri explained things really well. He made me feel safe and was very encouraging. Horseback archery helps improve my seat, as well. I loved it.“

Noah Fine, age 11yrs.
