Your horse gallops out onto the fields of a vast plain, chasing after the few orcs fleeing from your arrows. Your LARP Scythian Horsebow gleams beneath the sunlight, and every arrow you let fly finds its mark. With balance and elven grace, you reach for another arrow in your quiver.
The orcs made a mistake when they entered your family’s forest. You successfully taunted their scouting party into a trap, and now all that is left is a little cleanup.

When not in use, keep the bow unstrung to increase its life. Store the bow horizontally in order to protect the tips. Do not leave it in the sun for long periods of time, if you do, make sure it cools down before use. Never release the string without an arrow, since the shock of the shot will be absorbed by the bow and might cause damage.
Use a damp cloth to wipe away any dirt from the bow and then wipe dry. Simple as that! The only thing you might have to worry about is the string, which may eventually appear ratty or worn. Replace the string when this happens. String is cheaper than replacing a broken bow from a string snapping!
If you want to increase the life of your string, you can add a little bit of wax. Wax will protect the string from moisture while also keeping the threads together.
