2018 Jan 27/28 - War Pony Mounted Archers

I had a very exciting weekend photographing for the War Pony Mounted Archers in Baker, Florida over the weekend.  

Saturday was an Intro clinic into mounted archery.  The participants learned about equipment, history, and how to shoot the bow stationary and moving.  They then moved on to desensitizing their horse to the equipment and the noise that comes with shooting while mounted.  Drills were set up to give confidence to both riders and horses and all had plenty of opportunity to shoot while mounted and move on to a faster pace if they were comfortable.  Sunday was the "Repeat Offenders" participants, meaning they had completed a prior introductory course at some time and were back for more!  This group went over all of the above, and then moved on to refining their technique and timing.  Then after warming up their horses and some basic shooting from horse back, they moved on to a number of patterns consistent with different classes that would be available if they choose to compete.

I was very impressed with the knowledge and the teaching ability of the clinician, Elizabeth Tinnan.  She was patient, fun, encouraging, and very flexible in finding what worked best not only for you but your horse as well.  Anyone out there looking for a great sport growing in the U.S., give this a try.  It will be a ton of fun you wont forget!
