Learn Mounted Archery And do Two Things You Love At The Same Time! Amazing Video!

A horse archer is able to shoot while riding from horseback. He is a cavalryman armed with a bow combining riding and shooting at the same time. Horse archery has occasionally been used from the backs of other riding animals and it was a highly successful technique for hunting in large open areas. Also, it has been used for protecting the herds and for war.
