I bought one years ago at Cloverdale and played with it just a little. Never did get the hang of it though. Isn't that for horse bows?

Historically yes, "horse bows", but have seen a few also using them for other type of trad bows.
Thinking of trying a horse bow, using the thumb style release, anyone got any suggestions on a starter one?

The one I bought was brass iirr. It also had a leather tether i think. You probably need to be fitted by someone who understands these things and get a little help to get started. I tried mine a few times and really didn't take to it but many do and I'm sure become skilled with its use.
