The Archery School at The Equinox provides a rare opportunity for guests to learn this ancient sport under skilled supervision. In recent years, archery has garnered a loyal and dedicated following as a leisure pursuit. Testing both the skill of the participant and the balance and craftsmanship of the equipment, the challenge of mastering one of mankind's oldest hunting weapons holds broad appeal for both sexes and a variety of ages. Having mastered the mounting and drawing of a bow, novices at The Archery School can soon experience the thrill of releasing their first arrow at a simple target, under controlled and safe conditions. The Archery School features re-curve bows for teenagers and adults, as well as a range of junior bows for children as young as eight. The archery school is open May 1 through October 31.
Introductory LessonsLearn to mount and draw re-curve bows to release a set of arrows at a traditional target, over a short distance. Once a degree of proficiency has been mastered, the distance between archer and target will be increased. Guests will also learn about the language and history of the sport. Private party bookings for 1-11 archers.
Field Archery LessonGuests who have mastered the basics during an Introductory Lesson can then test their skills on our Field Archery course. A specially prepared trail leads the archer through a woodland 3D course to shoot at a variety of life-sized animal targets. The instructor offers advice and keeps score as experience is gained in applying new-found skills to a hunting situation. Private party bookings for 1-11 archers.
