Biography

EMIL ERIKSSON


Horseback archer

Who am i


 

I was born in Lycksele a small town in northern Sweden. I have as long as i remember  been interested in archery and horses, but it was my grandfather that inspired me to begin riding. First time I came in contact with Horseback archery was 2007 when i visited a medieval fair in Lule√•. I got so inspired that i went back home and started to train in secret on one of the horses at the local riding club. One day i took the horse to the riding house, and i told my friend that she should not worry if the horse takes off we are at least in a riding hall with walls around it. i mounted up and shoot my first arrow from her standing still and then one in walk. those shoots marked the beginning of my career!
