Knights on Horseback

Available to hire for Events, Advertising, Publicity, Re-enactments, Theatre performances and Corporate Events

Our knights on horseback are available to hire across the UK featuring our professional performers and stunt riders who enjoy performing together with the beautiful horses of The Cavalry of Heroes.

Bespoke costumes, flags and horse caparisons are all available to fit with your theme and Knights can be in full armour or more theatrical, historically accurate to a particular period in history or more atmospheric.  Our Knights on Horseback can tailor their performances to children, family or adult audiences and are available indoors and outdoors following the necessary safety elements.  Fully licenced and insured, with our Animal Activities Licence (N-PERF30) formally the Performing Animal’s Licence.  Some past performances for inspiration:

  • Meet and Greet for Events – imagine your visitors being greeted by a medieval knight (two, three or more!) on horseback, creating such a sense of occasion by calling out ‘need to know’ information, posing for photographs and directing your guests to the main event.
  • Surprise Entertainment  –  jousting performances to surprise your visitors
  • Publicity – draw in the crowds and make a statement, our knights can give out information about your event or product
  • St George on Horseback – Our wonderful St George and his beloved steed is available to appear at events.  There is even a dragon too!
  • Medieval Weddings – if you are getting married we have a whole page dedicated to medieval weddings here, for horseback arrivals and entertainment.
