Entry Description

Horseback Archery is a martial discipline combining the arts of horsemanship and archery. The world famous Kassai School of Horseback Archery was started about 25 years ago in Hungary by Lajos Kassai. Since then, one man's passion has kindled fires not just in the hearts of many Hungarian men but increasingly in the hearts of Hungarian women as well. This is a beautiful, physically and mentally challenging sport. To watch is a stirring experience indeed. To participate is to seek that moment of oneness between rider and horse when the arrow is released, a moment with echoes from the past, a moment which makes the spirit soar.
