To provide a positive & inclusive community for all horse archers within the United States. Together we support, encourage and facilitate the expansion of horse archery as an equestrian discipline. 


MA3 offers the chance to be a part of a tight-knit, supportive community while building friendships and creating opportunities for growth as a person and an athlete. This sport allows riders to experience what it is like to navigate a horse, reinless, through the course while shooting arrow after arrow.

    "Horse archery is liberating. For roughly 9 to 14 seconds nothing else in the world matters but the next target in front of you and the hoofbeats below you."

  • Leah Earle

    "The camaraderie and support here is like no other in the equine world. The bond between you an your horse is the ultimate partnership in trust."



We'd love to hear from you.
