RIYADH: An archery field has been set up at a major international falconry exhibition to help visitors learn more about the sport and try their hand at it.
The third Saudi International Falcons and Hunting Exhibition is being held at the headquarters of the Saudi Falcons Club in Mulham, which is north of Riyadh.
Coach Mohammed Al-Sharif said archery was considered an easy sport and that students must know its seven basic rules. He explained that the basics for mastering the bow depended on the person themselves, such as their height.
Prices for a bow and arrow ranged from SR700 ($182) to SR15,000 and, in some cases, could exceed that, he added.
The falconry event, believed to be the largest of its kind in the world, includes pavilions devoted to hunting weapons, various species of falcons, and family activities.
There are also shooting ranges and a digital museum.
