Rate this:
This Chinese miniature shows a Mongol archer on horseback. The nomadic steppe people began riding at the age of three and were expert riders and archers. It is said that they could shoot a bird in flight out of the sky while galloping full-speed on horseback. Part of their secret, apparently, was that they would only shoot in the split-second while all four of the horses hooves were off the ground.
