    [Horsebow] Horsebow suitable for child

    Hi guys, bit of advice needed After a superb weekend shooting at Argyll Field Archers my son is keen on getting a horse bow for a bit of variety when we are up there, the question is what's suitable?

    Portsmouth PB

    Bows for children

    Hi, Does anyone have any experience with purchasing a bow for a 6-7 year old? I'm getting a lot of pressure to let him have a go! My son is quite a sturdy chap and pretty strong. I've found various kids bows on line at Merlin and others, are these actually any good? BTW who knows if this the...
