Korean Triple  (K3)


Name: Korean course (walk and trot)


Course diagram:

Track required: 90m track 2-4m wide 
Track variation for WT grading: The track may be between 50 and 90m, with the spacing of targets appropriate for the length

Equipment required: 3 targets with either FITA80 or 71cm square 5-zone korean targets



The rules are based on the IHAA Korean rules with a few variations

  • Arrows must be held in a quiver

  • The track set up for the triple shot is as shown in the diagram above (and is the same as the canter K3 track): 3 targets set back 7m from the edge of the track, and perpendicular to the track, at 15m, 45m and 75m.

  • For runs 1-3 only 1 arrow may be shot at each target
    For runs 4-6 multiple arrows may be shot at each target

  • The course may be done at either walk or at trot
    It is permitted to ride at a faster pace by accident
    It is not permitted to ride at a slower pace; ie, if a horse stops during a walk class, or if a horse slows to a walk or halt during a trot class, then no points can be scored on this particular run (even if no arrows were shot at this slower pace).



  • 5 zone scoring: 1-5 pts

  • No time constraints/points

  • No multi-hit bonus points

  • If a horse slows to walk (during a trot class) or stops (for a walk or trot class) then no points are scored for that run.
    If this happens there is no disqualification, scoring for all other runs is as normal
