I had so much fun!

Watch in HD at 720p! I finally figured out how to actually get the HD part of my camera to upload haha!

  2. Wow! That was seriously impressive. Are they actually trying to knock each other off the horses? Harley would love this.

    I think I see a gaited horsey in the bunch...

    1. Val, no, we are not trying to knock each other off the horses! The jousting style we do is scored on a point system: you get max points if you shatter the lance tip on your opponent's shield. While unhorsing can occur, it's pretty rare. There are other jousting styles where unhorsing is the goal, but that's not us.

      And yes, the gaited horse is Red, AKA Reddums the Feerless War Pony. He's a 17 year old Missouri Foxtrotter, and he's all of 14.2. But he LOVES jousting and is one of the best mounts we have!

    2. Yes, Jen's got a wee Reddums! If Greta was not in rehab, I seriously think she might find all this galloping great fun. Maybe when she's better... it would also give her more away-from-home experience.

    1. hahahaha! Jen made a funny comment once we realized that the droopy lances were NOT going to work: "These lances need Viagara!"
