Hidden Creek Ranch is excited to now offer services and facilities for horse archery, also called mounted archery.
Horse archery is a modern sport adapted from ancient warfare. Whether you are walking, trotting, or cantering you will enjoy the thrill and empowerment this sport offers. Come on out and give it a try!
In addition specializing in gaited training, horse rider relationships, bridleless riding, I am now offering training for the archery horse.
Recently have I been swept up into the world of horse archery. There is so much to fall in love with - the thrill, the empowerment, the skill, the community of supportive horse archers! One the things I enjoy the most about horse archery or mounted archery is the training and relationship that is needed to make a safe, steady and fun equine partner that can carry it’s rider over the ground while flinging arrows at a target.
As it turns out the last twenty plus years of developing my training methods created horses with good foundations. The methods I use develop horses with trusting relationships between horse and rider, experienced in reins free, and bridleless work. This made the addition of archery horse to their resume easy and enjoyable. Many of the horse I have trained have been doing this longer than I have. As several of them carried new, strange, or their own riders to safe success during horse archery clinics given by Elizabeth Gonzales Tinnan.
I am exited to ad Horse Archery training for your horse to the list of horse training goals I already offer.
