The Coffee Shop – A Modern Day Warrior: Mastering Mounted Archery

The Coffee Shop is an open thread-style discussion forum for human interest news of the day.

From Great Big Story:

To call Lukas Novotny an expert horseback rider paints an incomplete picture. Novotny is one of the world’s leading horseback archers. Yeah, you read that right: he shoots arrows on horseback. Now, Novotny is almost single-handedly keeping the tradition alive.


This is an open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments.  If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet.  Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.

    Impressive! Gotta love people who re-learn skills that have been forgotten as technology has made them obsolete – they open windows into the past..

    Might want to be real careful shooting the target on top of the seven meter pole. Lawn darts were bad enough.

  3. But pete, he’s on the horse, and the horse is moving away from the target. But yeah, what goes up will most assuredly come back down. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near!
