What you'll do

This is a one-of-a-kind archery experience! We’ll gather at a private, secluded archery course in an enchanting forest called, “Sherwood”. Sherwood is nestled alongside a natural stream, close by to Ashland town. We begin our very special archery experience with some short mind/body-centering techniques specific to the style of archery whose origins are steeped in the Robin Hood era of English archery folklore. This helps set the foundation for the best archery experience possible. After we cover basic archery safety & use of equipment you will be “loosing” arrows at a variety of fun, challenging & creative targets for the next 90 minutes. Our time together will give you an opportunity to practice true “Instinctive” style archery; the style of intuitive archery I regularly teach through my company, Moonbow Archery. I call it, “Aiming from the Heart.” We will end our session with some fun balloon popping! Nothing reduces stress and puts more smiles on faces like popping balloons with arrows!!! Be prepared to shoot lots of arrows, fall in love with archery in a tranquil, relaxing forest setting and have a ton of fun doing it. Our motto is: Aim With ❤️

Archery captured my heart as a 7 year old, growing up in Australia. Today, I’m recognized as one of the top nationally certified “Instinctive-Style” Level 2 archery instructors. Through my Ashland Oregon company, Moonbow Archery, I provide individual and group archery instruction & host traditional & modern archery events for professional groups, retreats, schools, SOU, sports teams, corporations, family gatherings & special celebrations. My teaching style originates from my career as a corporate trainer, Aikido & archery instructor. Aiming With Heart is the focal point of my instinctive-style archery instruction, a practice with roots in antiquity, from the chariot riding Egyptian archers, Assyrians, Turks, Koreans, Mongolian horse-back archers, renowned Welsh & English Long bowmen & Japanese Zen practitioners of the “Way of the Bow.

Where you'll be

Your special archery experience will be held a short drive from downtown Ashland in “Sherwood”, our private archery area that’s nestled in a forest beside a natural stream (seasonal). If weather is not favorable, we may move into our covered archery pavilion called the “Archery Center”. If you don't see a date/time that works, I will do my best to accommodate you. You may also wish to book a private session for your personal group.

This archery experience with Lloyd and Moonbow Archery was one of the highlights of our trip and we'll be booking again for our next adventure to Southern Oregon. A very fun activity for most ages and abilities; Ashland visitors and locals alike will enjoy! Lloyd is a friendly and accommodating host who made us feel comfortable and have fun during our first ever archery lesson. Thank you, Lloyd!

This experience has made our trip. If nothing else goes right, we will still leave happy. Lloyd is the perfect blend between Zen coach, storyteller, fun conversationalist and downright kind person. He weaves in interesting historical information and tailors the experience to the people. We are inspired to find an archery center in our hometown now. Run, do not walk to this experience! You won't regret it. My husband says this doesn't sound like a real review. It is!

Lloyd was so amazing! We went into the experience a little nervous, but after a few minutes I felt comfortable and confident. Everything about this was absolutely perfect! We would like to come back again and get more into archery in our free time. What an experience!
