      Sorry, just going on what I've been told. What is the proper term? Mounted target archery? I'll send you what I have for now in the way of pics...and YES, YES, YES, all assistance in this is appreciated! I want to promote this locally and compete in the inter-kingdom competitions, and having the proper briefing on the "correct" equipment and safety procedures is the best way to keep from embarrassing and/or possibly injuring part of my team. I have been relying heavily on the Meridian Book of the Horse for my guidelines....anything not specifically covered on there can be figured out using a healthy dose of common sense and caution!!
      What is a Baldur Blunt? I've seen Marklins and some eraser-looking-things. Is that what they are?

      Thank you again for your assistance,
      Genvieve d'Argent Chene

      This is not mounted combat archery. There are a number of
      kingdoms that have been doing this for a while now and it is working out
      well. Let me know where you are and I can point you to an existing mounted
      archer. There are quite a few things you can do, most of which are in
      various EQ handbooks. I'll let you know the links to such if you would like.
      Let me know what I can do to help out. BTW, Baldur Blunts have
      been advised against due to the bounce back problems at short
      range. Current pictures would be enjoyed :)
