Berkeley Castle Medieval Jousting Show 2017

by | May 1, 2017 | Equestrian Displays, Medieval Jousting Show

That was so much fun!  Once again a brilliant time had by all at the May Day Berkeley Castle Medieval Jousting Show, and with his Majesty King Henry VIII presiding over matters, our champions couldn’t afford to make any mistakes.

Everyone remembered the remarkable Sir William, our Golden Knight (Champion of the Tournament last year having beat King Louis of France in the final joust) and he didn’t disappoint, with more tricks than ever before, he was looking sure to win again this year on his beautiful black Friesian stallion Asgard.

Sir Robert, riding his trusted steed (Guinness) put up a good fight in the morning and was only narrowly bested by Sir William at Berkeley Castle Medieval Jousting Show.

AND THEN….

To the gasps of the wonderful Berkeley crowds, there he was, Sir William, captured by The Dark Knight, and forced to ride with him onto the castle lawns.  It was lucky that Sir Robert had stayed behind to help him!

This was The Dark Knight’s first appearance at Berkeley Castle Medieval Jousting Show and he bought with him ominous black thunder clouds in a fitting tribute to his dark mood for the last show, but we were delighted to see the cheering on of Sir William from a wonderful crowd who stayed with us until the end.

Even in the rain, nothing can dampen the spirit and enthusiasm of The Cavalry of Heroes!
