    it didn't cost a lot and seems pretty indestructible , not sure on looking in a mirror I avoid that at all costs!

    You could wear a monk's cowl and a ski mask if you like.
    Watching myself in the mirror (or in videos) proved helpful to uncover form flaws.

    I know nothing about horse bows so forgive my ignorance.

    From what I have seen people shooting these short bows seem to hold the grip rather than just letting it rest against the hand (with a finger/wrist sling), when the bow is not gripped it can tilt as you crawl down the string (which is the main way the arrow ends up lower on the boss) thus reducing the stress on the lower limb but if you are gripping the bow and keeping it vertical you will just be pulling harder on the bottom limb. I don't know if that is what you are doing but it is a possibility.

    This depends on the style. I'm using thumb draw with my short KTBs (Korean traditional bows).
    The most common (East Asian) grip style is the so-called Eagle claw. Pinkie and ring finger hold the bow tight, index finger is relaxed, or even stretched out to point towards the target (Manchu style). Upon release, this produces the forward tilt you use to see in YT videos.
