Lemonwood, purpleheart and hickory longbow (45 lbf at 28 inches). Photo taken by James Cram, and released into the public domain.
You need at least two hands to use a bow, regardless of its size. A longbow is too unwieldy to use while you are mounted. If you have a penalty for low Strength, apply it to damage rolls when you use a longbow. If you have a bonus for high Strength, you can apply it to damage rolls when you use a composite longbow (see below) but not a regular longbow.
