JACKALOPE - Amber - 54" - 20-45 lbs - Horse Bow - Model 2021
Do you love modern bows in traditional design? Then the JACKALOPE Amber is exactly what you are looking for! An exclusive equestrian bow whose limbs in light wood tones, perfectly complement the riser in warm brown and earth tones. Its eponym, the amber, is one of the oldest gemstones and healing stones in the world. It is an energetic protective stone that strengthens confidence and vitality. Its warm fire leads back to your own handle and supports you in energy-sapping situations. The perfect name for a perfect traditional bow.
The JACKALOPE Amber is a modern equestrian bow that reinterprets tradition. Its riser and the ends of the limbs, for example, are made of Dymondwood and modern Mycarta, both innovative materials in which several layers of wood have been processed into a highly stable compound. The Dymondwood in the riser, with its distinct and very decorative grain, gives the riser a natural, warm appearance. This contrasts with the light bamboo wood that extends over the entire arch and virtually frames the riser.
The riser is kept very slim and is equally suitable for right- and left-handed archers. The ends of the limbs, however, are perhaps the most striking feature of the whole bow, as they are much more strongly formed than on other rider's or recurve bows and yet appear very delicate and elegant. They give the bow something very special. Finally, the limbs themselves are made of bamboo wood and clear glass.
Horse bows - agile and fast
The horse bow was originally developed in Asia. The best-known peoples are the Huns and Mongols, who have used this archetype of bow manufactured over centuries. The horse bows were, as the name suggests, designed and perfected for shooting from horses. When riding, the space on the horse is limited and the mounted warrior had to remain agile in order to survive or to hunt successfully. In contrast to the typical Western European bows, such as the English longbow, horse bows do not consist of a single piece but are usually composed of several parts. Thus wood was used, which was glued and reinforced with horn, strings and bones to build a strongly reflex bow, which is short enough to shoot from the horse and which could guarantee long pull-outs and fast arrow speeds.
This almost perfect bow spread worldwide in the course of history and other peoples also developed their horse bows, which did not differ significantly in their basic function, but each represented its own variants. In Europe, it is above all the Magyars (Hungarians) who enjoy an excellent reputation as riders, archers and bowmakers and who form the horse bow and the shooting of horses.
