2022 Canadian Mounted Archery Tournament
The Canadian Federation of Mounted Archery (CFMA) is pleased to announce the inception of the annual Canadian Mounted Archery Tournament (C-MAT). The C-MAT is a Canada-wide five-month long mounted archery postal competition series with the goal to crown the annual Canadian horse archery champions of various disciplines and the overall Great Canadian Horse Archery Champion. This year, 2022, will be the first year of the C-MAT.
The C-MAT will include a diverse selection of the competition and discipline styles the Canadian horse archers have come to love. Clubs and event organizers may organize their own competitions specifically for this purpose, or competitions already planned may be run as part of the C-MAT series. The included horse archery disciplines currently consist of IHAA, WFEA, and WHAF disciplines, and may vary each year. For 2022, the qualifying disciplines are:
IHAA Tower 90
IHAA Raid 233
WHAF Serial 99
The participants can submit results for the different disciplines once per month. The monthly results from May to September are compiled and posted on the CFMA website and Facebook page. In October, the results for each participant will be tallied, and a discipline champion for each qualifying discipline and the overall Great Canadian Horse Archery Champion will be crowned. (The specific details on the tallying and champion-selection will be posted in the near future).
Participation is open to all horse archers in Canada, regardless of affiliation, club membership, or citizenship. However, in order to be crowned a Canadian Champion, the participant must be a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident.
The C-MAT disciplines must be performed in the canter.
All tracks must be approved by the CFMA. Track approval can be met with photos or videos of the track sent to email@example.com
Registration Form HERE
All participating competitors must register with the CFMA through their club (regardless of affiliation) by the last day of the previous month, using the CFMA-prepared registration form. Non-club affiliated competitors can register as individuals directly. Payment is be done by e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration Fee for C-MAT:
One Submission (any one month) – $20 for CFMA members / $40 for non CFMA members
Two Submissions (any two months) – $30 for CFMA members / $50 for non CFMA members
Three or more Submissions (May to September) – $40 for CFMA members / $60 for non CFMA members
Participants may only submit results once per month using the CFMA-prepared score sheets (downloaded from website, will be posted soon). Scores must be submitted by the last day of each respective month. Result submission for club-affiliated participants is done through the participating club, for non-club-affiliated participants results are submitted to the CFMA by the individuals directly.
Each month’s results will be posted on the CFMA website and Facebook page.
Crowning of the annual Canadian Champion of each discipline and the overall Great Canadian Horse Archery Champion will take place via video conference in October once all scores and information are recorded.
Please note that the included IHAA disciplines are aligned with this year’s IHAA Postal Matches. Therefore, these results not only count in our C-MAT event, but can also be submitted to the IHAA and counted in Postal Matches and IHAA Grading. Furthermore, while hosting these C-MAT events, the CFMA encourages the organizers to also hold IHAA Grading and IHAA Postal Match participation for Walk, Trot, and Canter classes. The competition scores will support IHAA grading.
