Three People Entering Paradise

Based upon the hadeeth of the Prophet ﷺ, who are the three people who would enter paradise on the account of an arrow?

Narrated by Uqbah ibn Amir: I heard the Apostle of Allah ﷺ say:

Allah, Most High, will cause three persons to enter Paradise for one arrow: the maker when he has a good motive in making it, the one who shoots it, and the one who hands it; so shoot and ride, but your shooting is dearer to me than your riding. Everything with which a man amuses himself is vain except three (things): a man's training of his horse, his playing with his wife, and his shooting with his bow and arrow. If anyone abandons archery after becoming an adept through distaste for it, it is a blessing he has abandoned; or he said: for which he has been ungrateful.”  [1]
