One of my most memorable events in 2008 was attending a 'Skill at Arms' day!! We learned to use swords on horse back and deystroyed a couple of cabbages lol! We also had a go with the lance trying to spear a few hoops - an interesting slant on hook a duck lol! and finally we had a go at jousting the 'Quintane'
It was just such a fantastic day and Antsje was AMAZING! It was just as if she had been doing this all her life! Richard Maxwell who is an ex cavalry man also took her through her paces and I was just speechless at how professional they both looked for saying Richard had never ridden her before and Antsje had never done anything like this before in her life!!
What a clever girl!
And for some video!
