I am in China on business, have been here for about 2 years now. We were invited to a Medding several months ago. After the dancing and drinking and
eating, the men left the main tents, the horses and bows came out, and i was treated to spectacular feats of horsemanship and archery.
It was an amazing event to witness, and can understand how these people could overrun entire nations. Targets were set up, and they were shot dead
on at full gallop, standing tall on the horse ( there were no saddles) many different acrobatic moves while shooting.
I was given a Bow set by the Host, something i will treasure the rest of my life. It is a work of Art, wood and bone construction, polished and just
Quite a beautifull culture as well.
