MA3, under the IHAA, as the official representative organization of horse archery in the United States, is maintaining the list of the top rated horse archers ranked in order based on standard Raid and Tower course scores achieved in LIVE competition. It will be open to all horse archers based in the United States, REGARDLESS OF AFFILIATION, according to the National Ranking System guidelines and rules linked below.
One of the primary functions of this ranking system will be to help with team selection for events such as IHAA and WHAF World Championships among other things.
It is worth noting that, in the United States, the term "ranking" was historically used for what we now know as "grading," the international standard for assessing skill levels. The grading system remains unchanged, and grades will not be affected by the new National Ranking System.
