New to Mounted Archery 


Most local stores in our area only carry traditional bows with arrow rests, a bow with out a arrow rest in needed. 

There are links to websites on that sell Horse Bows that are very useful. 

ANY traditional bow that does not have a arrow rest is allowed. It will be your preference on style and size. Shorter bows are easier to handle then the long ones. (Except PVC bows, they are not permitted due to safety)


Can buy from just about any archery store. 

When you buy arrows, be sure to get them to fit your needed length. Too short of arrows can cause you to shoot your hand that is holding the bow** Do not just use anyone's arrows, but sure they are not drawn past the bow when shooting. 

Use Feathered fletching's, not plastic. The feathers will glide past your hand, plastic will cut your hand**

Blunt tips only

Colors, plastic, wood - all personal preference - Advised to use bright colors to help find your arrows when target is missed


Any style quiver that is attached to the person will work. It is not recommended to use quivers attached to the horse. 

Back quivers, side quivers and leg quivers are all common. Most men with a longer draw length normally prefer the leg quiver. Most women with a shorter draw length prefer the side quivers. See what works best for you. 


This is a personal preference whether you use them our not. 


You can wear anything to the competitions right now. We highly encourage the Mongolian outfits, we will have an award for best dressed at each event! Horses can be dressed as well but not required. 

**Come to our Club meetings the Friday before the competitions or any of the open days and we can help you in getting set up for mounted archery.**
