      I knew a few horsearchers from Georgia when I took my lessons from Kassai
      but haven't stayed in touch with them. You should sign onto the HorseArchery
      Yahoo group, and ask around there:

        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.

            Greetings from Donwenna LaMareschale, Deputy to the Society Equestrian
            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 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 :)

                Thank you. Sorry everyone that I didn't reply quickly. I had to fly
                up to Boise, Idaho (from Georgia) My Grandmother is probably going
                to pass away anytime.....and we are very close. I will be slow to
                reply for the remainder of my visit...I leave Tues. 4/10.
