Re: Combination shoot question.
- Sounds really neat, though there may be some difficulties in the details. So, you would have to have a range of bows at each station and you would have to make sure to accommodate both left and right handed archers (having only bows shot off the hand would work nicely, but a range of bows would work too).
If you have more than one bow, you would have to be sure each of the bows available is closely comparable to one another. Having a solid laminated recurve with a window for the right handed archers and a cheap youth fiberglass shot off the hand for the lefties might ruffle some feathers.
Would you have a range of draw weights? Again, same comparability problem if so. Also, you would have to have a set of arrows spined to match each of the bows as it wouldn't be practical to expect archers to carry the exact spine of the bows you have available.
You may also get a couple of freaks like me who shoot thumb ring though you can probably work them in with the left handed archers.

If we had any, we'd like to add a fourth station of Mongolian horse bows to be shot from a mounted saddle. Any thoughts, comments, or related experience would be appreciated.

Well, let us agree to disagree on this issue.
