You may wish to talk with my co-scribe, Evian Blackthorn. He and his son
are currently training their horses for a possible future in horse
archery/combat. He is becoming quite the authority on the subject, and if
it was not him you talked to, he may know who it was.
He can be reached via: theweb@...

- I also saw the gentle whom you seek, and spoke with him for a few moments
but didn't think to ask where he was from. He had the weirdest style of
shooting I've ever seen-gripping the bow (one of Kassai's Magyars, I
believe) with his left hand, parallel to the ground, palm down with the
string OVER the arm, and drawing with the right so that the thumbs faced
each other. He had pretty bad accuracy, and when I questioned him about
the style, he said that it was a style of horse archery. If anyone
recognizes this, please post to the net.

American Great Plains, which are the predominant regions for horse
