She strong, she’s fit, she’ll see you in the lists! Lancelot, Lancelot! Lambeth Country Show last weekend saw the first appearance of our Lady Lancelot as she joined five other Knights in shining armour on Horseback as they competed in the joust to see who will become tournament champion.
A show close to both my heart and our Golden Knight, Sir William’s (Marc Lovatt) heart, as it is on the doorstep of where we first met. Marc was living in Brixton running Triathlons and working with horses and I was working in the city and living in Northcote Road. The London Skyline from the top of Brockwell park is just stunning and will always remind us where we met. What has made returning even better is being surround by our beautiful horses!
As always, thank you London, for being an amazing crowd, including the lovely lady who insisted that our Lord Baldric ‘Get his kit off’ to which he almost obliged. Everyone cheered as the Knights performed with a buzz of excitement and greeted their fans as everyone was asked to choose their favourite Knight and with so many to choose from it wasn’t an easy task.
Our Knights included Lady Lancelot, who had stolen her father’s armour to complete. Our Golden Knight, Sir William fighting for truth, compassion and tolerance. Sir Baldric on the fasted horse in the arena Apollo, the first of the Dark Knight’s evil Henchmen. And not to forget The King, The Dark Knight and Sir Agravaine.
The horses drew the biggest crowd though and were beautifully behaved, even our Stallions, when they were distracted by the police horses performing but also when the mounted police were patrolling the park. Couldn’t have been more proud of the boys; Asgard, Zorro, Harry, Apollo, Curioso and Guinness.
