One of the great things about horse archery is the amount of flexibility the sport offers. You don't need any fancy clothing or specific tack, and things like the breed, color, or age of an archery horse don't matter. What does matter are the horse's intrinsic qualities and training. So, what makes a great archery horse?


  1. Ability to maintain a steady gait without need for constant correction.
  2. Ability to quickly adjust to new and chaotic environments.
  3. Quiet/calm demeanor.
  4. Independent personality - not herd bound or barn sour.
