Korean Triple (K3)
Name: Korean course (walk and trot)
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
