Crow River Mounted Archers

Learn about the equipment and history of mounted archery and how to get started in the sport.

Crow River Mounted Archers was established in 2018 with just a few members from across the state of Minnesota.  To start we offered a beginner mounted archery clinic and another one a year later.  Our club has monthly meetings in which we practice both our shooting skills and horsemanship. We along with MA3 offer the chance to be a part of a community, building friendships and creating opportunities for growth as a person and an athlete. This exciting sport allows riders to experience what it is like to navigate a horse, without using reins, through the course while shooting arrow after arrow.

“Mounted archery is a calling.  Many people know it when they see it – that they were meant to be a horse archer.  You are a special kind of horseman from a different type of tradition.  It is not just something that we do, it is something that we are.  The magic of mounted archery enables us to reconnect to the past, to the earth, the air, the elements and physics.  We train and test all of our senses along with those of our faithful horses to higher levels of personal discipline and reward.

A power exists between the archer, horse and bow that is are to find in conventional horse sports.  Horseback archery has an ancient soul that existed for generations and across cultures worldwide.  We share that collective soul in our practice.  Mounted archery is referred to as the Queen of Martial Arts.  And is a discipline requiring the dedication of a humble pupil and the heart of a warrior.  We celebrate all these things every time we train or compete together.  Each occasion is a shared celebration where we honor each other and our horses as we enjoy our own personal journeys in mounted archery.”
