Rankings!

High Plains Mounted Archers held its first International Horse Archery Alliance ranking during the last week of November and first week of December. The designated course was the Korean Triple at the walk or trot, with three runs being a single shot per target and three runs of shooting as many per target as possible. This was a great exercise in speed loading, and also got everyone comfortable with their first competition-type event.

Like all IHAA rankings, people from around the world submitted their scores for the walk/trot event. It’s like an international competition but you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home course. The results were announced mid-January, and High Plains Mounted Archers couldn’t be prouder.

Jen Mahoney won with a score of 94. Abby Martin was the top junior and placed 14th overall. Completed results are listed below.

So if you’re thinking of trying mounted archery, but are hesitant to jump in, wait no more. There are competitions for all levels of riders and horses. Whether you’re a beginner archery or coming back from an injury (like Jen) or still working out the kinks with your horse, mounted archery offers something for everyone.
