Horton Crossbow

Horton Crossbows: A History Based in Tradition and Innovation

It was nearly fifty years ago when Bernard Horton, skilled gun maker and sportsman, realized the great potential that existed in the crossbow industry. At that time, no one had previously devoted the time and engineering needed into developing accurate and powerful crossbows. Horton realized he had an opportunity to redesign the crossbow to make it an effective hunting tool. Horton began experimenting with crossbow designs for his personal use, but it was not long before others wanted to purchase the new crossbows. With that, the Horton Crossbow was born.

From the very beginning, a Horton Crossbow was designed for efficiency and accuracy. The first of Horton's crossbow designs were rugged, compact, and accurate, a common theme that is carried on today with each new Horton Crossbow model. Horton focused on applying the knowledge he possessed of advanced shooting technology to improving accuracy of each crossbow. Even today, Horton Crossbows are a leader in the crossbow industry combining latest technology with the needs of a modern hunter in an effort to advance the sport.
