      Been looking at the 600 to 800 time period. Was thinking of the Alans myself.

      Good to know others are looking beyond the Mongols.

      Hello,
      My name is Jennifer (have not picked out my SCA name yet)and I am
      obviously new to the SCA. My husband was very involved before we got
      married, and now that we have moved back to his old stomping grounds,
      and our youngest is 3 years old, we are finally getting back into the
      swing of things.

      Anyway, I have decided on a Sarmatian persona. I am completely
      fascinated by this culture. I went searching for a Horse culture,
      because of my love of riding (I am also a beginner at that, but
      taking lessons) and I had remembered the Sarmatians (luckily my
      father was a History teacher...so I have some knowledge :) The more I
      found out the more I knew I was going to love participating in the
      SCA because I finally found a culture that I just love.

      It will be a while before I am a good enough rider to participate in
      Horseback Archery, but; nonetheless, I would like to get in touch
      with people near me who do it now. I live in Buford, Ga., in the
      Kingdom of Meridies. Does anyone know of anyone in my neck of the
      woods who does Horseback Archery?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Jennifer

        Hello fellow horseback archers,

        My name is Hilary and I reside in Trimaris. I grew up with horses and so
        am approaching HBA from a different direction. I am a competant rider
        but must hone my archery skills. It is an exciting sport and I am
        pleased to see interest in it grow. Our Kingdom also did a demo last
        year with Archers shooting from carriages. Everyone had a blast. There
        are a few other yahoo!groups that you may want to join.

        The first is the HorseArchery
        <http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/HorseArchery/> group. They
        "discuss both the historical aspects of horse archery and its practice
        in modern times, either as a recreation or just for fun !"

        This group is not specifically geared for SCAdians but rather on all
        aspects of HBA. There are SCA members on this list but also folks who
        compete mundanely.

        The second group is the MeridianCavalry
        <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MeridianCavalry/> . "It is the
        un-official Meridian Equestrian College mailing list. This list is an
        information clearing house for the College to keep members updated on
        events, practices, rules and changes, and general information."

        This group focuses on all aspects of equestrian activities of the middle
        ages including Heavy Mounted Combat and Jousting. The Kingdom Equestrian
        Officer is a member of this list and he will surely be able to help you
        contact equestrians in your Kingdom with similar interests.

        If you have anymore questions please ask, I'll do my best to answer
        them.

        Hilary

            Jim...as far as horses go..have you heard of the Akhal-Teke breed...I
            am now obsessed, but essentially, the are an ancient horse breed that
            originated from the Eurasian Steppes...they are rare, and do very
            well at Endurance, etc. I am currently taking lessons and leasing a
            17h Friesan/Percheron/Saddlebred cross (looks just like a purebred
            Friesan, black with feathers :)but in 2.5 years or so, I plan to buy
            myself an Akhal-Teke.

            Anyway, thank you again for all the advice, and I also appreciate
            whatever other information anyone else has to offer.

            Have a great day!

              I'm debating on whether or not to adopt a mustang. But then I have to find someone who will gentle it for me. What I'll probably end up doing is going down to the Livestock auctions in Phoenix and finding a horse there. I know someone who does this regularly, cleans up the horse and sells it for twice what she paid.

              The Friesian cross sounds beautiful...I'm jealous.

                Hi Jim, When I look at Akhal-Teke ads, they refer to one that is 15.2h being short for an Akhal-Teke, and there are a lot that are 16h...so :) Go to

                  Hi Jim,
                  When I look at Akhal-Teke ads, they refer to one that is 15.2h
                  being "short" for an Akhal-Teke, and there are a lot that are
                  16h...so :) Go to www.equine.com and do a search on them. I had a
                  beautiful Grulla Mustang Gelding myself :) His name is Reno, because
                  they caught him in Nv. and sold him out of Reno, and that is where I
                  was born and raised :)
