Riding over the steppes, with the wind sweeping through his hair and the smell of horse in his nose, was the greatest thing in the young Gunbold's life. That unique smell of hay, horse-dung, and fermented milk wafted from the horse’s mane into his nose. His trusty horsebow was in his hand, and he nocked an arrow, looking at the distant target. The blood rushed through his veins, and he let out a whoop as the arrow struck home and took down the deer. His family would eat well this evening.

The Ready for Battle Horsebow is a realistic-looking bow made in the image of the composite bows used by such horseriders as the Mongolian hordes of the 12 and 1300s. The bow is 119 cm long, has a fibreglass core, and is covered in soft suede. Its draw weight of 24-26 lbs. ensures that the bow is built to last while not having so much force that you might injure an opponent. The leather grip is not only a stylish and interesting detail but also ensures that you have a better grip.

A few things to note with this bow is that it is handmade. This means that it might not be entirely smooth and might have some fibreglass strands. You should remove these carefully before use. Similarly, the bowstring is handmade and might have a few strands loose. These can be removed and closed with a controlled flame, but be careful not to overdo it. The string is included with the bow. If you’re looking for a bow without strands, check out the sanded-down RFB Horsebow Deluxe.

The bow's draw weight is 24-26 lbs, measured with a 28" shaft, but it can vary +/- 3 lb, as it is made from natural materials. Similarly, the appearance can vary as well.

Your mother is a famous archer in your kingdom, and a feared competitor whenever archery tournaments are held. You’ve seen her hit a moving target the size of your palm without breaking a sweat.

One day you hope to live up to your mother’s name. Under her guidance, you practice daily with your LARP Youth Bow. Your mother says you have great potential--it’s in your blood, after all.

Maintenance

When not in use, keep the bow unstrung to increase its life. Store the bow horizontally in order to protect the tips. Do not leave it in the sun for long periods of time, if you do, make sure it cools down before use. Never release the string without an arrow, since the shock of the shot will be absorbed by the bow and might cause damage.

Cleaning

Use a damp cloth to wipe away any dirt from the bow and then wipe dry. Simple as that! The only thing you might have to worry about is the string, which may eventually appear ratty or worn. Replace the string when this happens. String is cheaper than replacing a broken bow from a string snapping!

If you want to increase the life of your string, you can add a little bit of wax. Wax will protect the string from moisture while also keeping the threads together.
