Mounted Archery Clinic
June 26 - June 27
Have you ever wanted to try Mounted Archery? Come on and give it a shot, as Heather Lomax of Hidden Creek Ranch introduces you and your horse to the sport (limited number of lesson horses available). Saturday morning with start with ground archery. Heather will introduce range safety, bows used in mounted archery, nocking methods, draw techniques, unique principles for archery from horseback. When the clinic is resumed from lunch break the horses will be brought in to begin the desensitization process and preparing the horses for mounted archery.
Sunday morning will again begin with ground archery, reviewing and building on the previous day’s skills. After lunch, the horses will come back into the clinic. Building on their exposure and introduction to mounted archery.
Each horse and rider will go at the pace that is best for them. Many horses are able to be ridden at the walk while having a bow and arrow shot from them the first day. Heather will put the horses first, so that their experiences remain positive while effective training is gained.

About the Clinician, Heather Lomax
I have been training horses and a riding instructor for 25 years. As well as a clinician specializing in horse rider relationships, foundations for bridleless riding, and gaited horses for many years. In 2020 I tried horse archery and fell in love with it. As it turned out, my horse training methods and values are the perfect foundation for mounted archery partner, the horse.
