Here at Tender Belly we are thrilled to know and be able to work with Erin Troyk and The Desert Warriors of the Southwest. Erin is a highly skilled mounted archer and we are so proud to have her as one of our Tender Belly sponsored athletes.
Erin joined The Desert Warriors of the Southwest team in 2017 following in the footsteps of her mother. She has been riding horses since the age of four, and didn’t pick up her first bow and arrow until 2017.
When she is not training, she is a custom tailor — designing suits and shirts for men.
We recently caught up with Erin and asked a few questions about her journey so you could get to know her better, and here is what she had to say:
Name: Erin Troyk
Sport: Horseback Mounted Archery
Title: Student level 4 and custom tailor
