Bored of two wheels? fancy something new? No, didn’t think so but anyway, if I may I’d like to recommend something different for you to try…
Was bought a days course, an Introduction to jousting, as a red letter day for my 40th.
Went yesterday, near warwick castle. What a fun day. Started with some sword work, learnign a corigraphed fight (I played the bad guy, which was fun but of course I had to loose in the end), then some archery befroe mouting a horse and learning all the skills required for jousting. Targetting rings with your lance, tilting at the Quintain (spinning target) Culminating in a tournament and finally the chance to have a tilt at an actual person
My legs ache and I’m very tired today but it was such fun, no previous riding expreience required (althoguh if you can it’s abonus).
Check it out… well worth it.
