The Yabusame archer, standing on his running horse, shoots the arrow.

The judges and thei assistant evaluate carefully the performance of the challenger. The archer is maintaining a correct posture and his balance is perfect. In this picture is possible to see the typical asymmetric shape of the Yumi longbow. Moreover, this archer is wearing a hat named “Ayahigasa”, different from the other one already seen in a previous shot. In this case the protection for the legs “Mukabaki” is not made of deer’s leather, but rather of decorated japanese silk.
