Horse Archery really does sound like fun. If I could ride a horse it seems like a fun way to combine archery and riding.
However, there are so many things wrong here. Shooting at a person on a horse is just a bad idea. I’m assuming the person agreed to wear a target as a coat, but what about that poor horse?
This just seems like a bad idea on so many fronts.
Why do I show these videos? Because I like to go to the range and every one of these videos gives the non shooting public a bad impression of the total shooting community.
Always follow the four basic rules of Gun Safety:
- Always keep firearms pointed in a safe direction.
- Treat all guns as though they are loaded.
- Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
- Always be sure of your target and what’s beyond it.
Looking Down The Barrel of a loaded weapon is a clear violation of Rule 1. Nothing could be worse from a safety perspective. This is how people die and their families are left with horrible questions. Was it an accident? Was there something we could have done to avoid the tragedy?
