First FYI, 3Rivers sells this bow as the "Magyar Sport Horse Bow" but to my knowledge Kassai no longer produces the Magyar Sport. What is sold here is the Kassai Raven.
In any case, I don't use a stringer for this type of bow. I string mine in the traditional way that Kassai himself does as depicted in his book "Horseback Archery" (2002). Here's how to string this bow if you are right handed:
Hold the unstrung bow upright in your right hand by the top siyah (that's the solid wood "ear" with the string nock). The string should be nocked in the lower siyah with the free end of the string in your left hand, grasping so that some of the top loop if free and open.
Grasp the top siyah in your right hand below the nock but above the wrap, with the siyahs curving to the right. Hold the bow and the string so they make a V with the string on the left and the bow on the right, still curving rightward.
Take a half step forward through the V with your right leg. Angle the bow behind the right leg and in front of your left leg so the bottom siyah hooks in front of the left leg's shin.
So now you should be standing with the bow threaded between your legs. The grip of the bow should be pressing into the back of your upper right thigh and the top siyah is resting in the palm of your right hand. Push forward with your right hand, bending the bow.
There should only be three points of contact between your body and the bow: your left shin on the lower siyah, the back of your right thigh with the grip, your right hand with the upper siyah. No part of your body should be touching the bow limbs.
Push forward with your right hand. Bend the bow only as far as you need to bring your left hand with the top string loop to the right hand's siyah. Slide the loop over the tip of the siyah and into the nock point. Ease off with your right hand so the string holds the bent bow. Take your right leg out of the bow and check the knock points before you start shooting.
