With wonderful hospitality from this great show,  a very enthusiastic audience and the sun shining the whole weekend, a marvellous time was had by all who came with us and saw our Medieval Jousting Stunt Show at this fantastic show.

Sir Lancelot made his first appearance with The Cavalry of Heroes and smashed it, riding Curioso Maximus, our white Andalusian Stallion.  He got two good strikes in against Sir Agravaine, but in a twist of fate received two knockout blows from our Dark Knight Lord Pendragon.  It looked like all was lost for our Golden Knight and Sir Lancelot until a sword fight ensued with a hilarious outcome.

Lots of trick riding and horse stunts including Roman Riding and falls were seen in this full on show.  The Knights even having a tete-a-tete with some Vikings.  All in all a really memorable weekend.

And of course, the real stars of our medieval jousting stunt show, our horses, Guinness (how could we not take the sweetest Irish Cob on a visit back to Ireland), Curioso Maximus, Harry and Apollo.  They were such wonderful boys for the whole trip, performing like the true stars they are.
