Kassai and Luigi (Gülügjab)

This page about Kassai is here, even though he is not a member of The Silver Horde or SCA, because he is an important figure in the modern world of Mounted Archery.

Kassai Lajos has been practicing mounted archery for about 15 years and is the one who gave instruction at the International Horse Archery Festival where Gülügjab has taken lessons. He owns land in his native Hungary where he gives lessons and hosts his own form of events year round.
