[Horsebow] Arrow rest

No! It would detract from the principle of a traditional bow. Shoot off the hand. I use a glove as new feathers can give a nasty cut.

Bill is quite right about the arrow rest, but I disagree about the need for a glove on the bow hand. New feathers or old can give a nasty cut, but only if your hand is too high on the bow, or the arrow is too low on the string.

Is it practical to put an arrow rest on a Grozer Horsebow
Not sure about a Grozer, but a mate of mine glued a small wooden rest on his Kassai. I was so impressed I put one on my SKB Mongolian. Very easy to do and made a world of difference. A very simple way to do this is to cut a tapered wedge out of thick leather and slide it into the top of the grip if you have a leather one. That gives enough to position the shaft. Very effective.

Strangely enough I get no arrow-burn on my Old Scythian, but get a lot on my Assyrian, and only with 3-finger draw, never with thumb-draw.

check the nock height in relation to the 'rest' (your hand), it may need to be a little higher so that the arrow lifts off your hand when released.
