After a lot of preparation and hard work on everyone’s part, we had our last horseback archery event of the season this past week. Hosted by Steve and Janie Vogt at their beautiful ranch in Hamilton, Montana, it was a success for all. While we didn’t have our full complement of Torzs members from Canada, those that were able to make it had a wonderful and successful time. A Torzs is a Hungarian term for tribe or group. We all belong to Borsos Torzs which is centered in Mt. Currie, British Columbia. Robert Borsos is our Torzsfo or chieftan.
This focus of the weekend was completion of several exams for some of our members. In the Kassai school, there are a series of exams that are required for competitors to pass in order to compete in Kassai sanctioned events. They include archery shooting form, a basic dressage type of test ridden bareback, some speed shooting and then putting it all together for the horseback archers exam. These exams are intended to ensure the highest standards for our members and it is no small thing to be considered a Kassai trained horseback archer. As our ranks of qualified horseback archers swell, look for more competitions at our Southern Command center (The Vogt Ranch) in Hamilton, Montana.
One other thing I would like to remind you about is our upcoming Western Dressage clinic coming up on the 13th-14th of September at the Dunrovin Guest Ranch in Lolo, Montana. This will be the last clinic in our Dressage series for this year. I hope you all can make it.
