The organisation is the outcome of years of work by the few people interested in promoting horseback archery in the UK. Most notably Hilary Greenland, Secretary of the SPTA, organised events and brought people together who were either interested in the sport or practising it. Following such an event on November 3rd 2007 held in Somerset, attendees agreed to establish the BHAA in order to create a more structured approach to the development of the sport.
