Welcome to Seawinds Horse Archers Club!
Archery from horseback was once the most formidable martial art on Earth. Recently revived from antiquity by the Hungarian Master Lajos Kassai, it’s become one of the fastest growing equine sports. In 2018 horsearchery reached Eastern Canada when Seawinds Horse Archers formed and successfully hosted our first competition! Since that time we have held competitions each summer and our small group of 6 has grown to over 100 members from the Maritime provinces and is inspiring the formation of new clubs.
Our mission is to safely introduce the martial art and modern sport of horseback archery to more people in our region. Seawinds hosts training camps, grading events, and competitions through the spring, summer, and fall and weekly classes year-round. Clinics are also held at outside stables in other provinces.
Our primary training location and track is on the shore of the Bay of Fundy at Wild Mountain Farm near Baxter's Harbour, Nova Scotia. Seawinds Horse Archers is an affiliated member of the Canadian Federation of Mounted Archery (CFMA), the national regulatory body for horseback archery in Canada.
Our instructor is club president, Lance Bishop, a CFMA-Approved Coach of Equestrian Archery (Level 3-Advanced Students) and International Judge with the World Federation of Equestrian Archery (WFEA).
This site contains information about what we do at Seawinds Horse Archers and how to join in on the spectacular primal journey of riding horses and shooting arrows. If you have any questions, just reach out to Lance by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or text message (902-670-0860).
