      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

        but haven't stayed in touch with them. You should sign onto the HorseArchery

          Thank you for all of your replies.

          Hilary...I have just asked to join both of the yahoo groups you
          mentioned. Thank you for the advice.

          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!

          God Bless.

            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.

              Officer,
              I am not sure if you knew, but there is a very active Equestrian
              community in Meridies and I would suggest that you join their Equestrian
              Email list and see if any other horseback archers are hanging out on it.
              Here is the Kingdom Equestrian websites :

              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 :)

                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.
