ABOUT ISTVAN TOTH
As a young boy, when asked what he would like to become when he grew up, Istvan would answer, "I will be an Indian." The Indian culture fascinated him and as he grew up he discovered the similar nomadic culture of his own ancestors in Hungary. The horse tribes known as the Huns and/or Magyars were notorious for their skills as archers and dedicated warriors.
When Istvan got older, late teens to early twenties, he began to learn dressage. Dressage is a technique used by equestrians to control their horse by leg and hip movement and centre of balance. He became well versed and starts to compete in the sport. As Istvan gets into his thirties he moves to the country, still interested in archery and the nomadic lifestyle he begins to build bows. His first bow is an English longbow. Soon he learns of a Hungarian man by the name of Lajos Kassai, a master of horseback archery. Being a horseman himself, Istvan becomes very excited about the sport and begins making his first horse bow. With time he perfects the craft and starts producing much sought after horse bows.
Istvan has been building horse bows for over 20 years now and though most horse bowyers focus primarily on archery, Istvan still considers himself a horseman first and an archer second. He lives in small town on the Hungarian Slovenian border called Kercaszomor.
