Registration is now open for Carosella 2017, our three day symposium of mounted combat, archery, and games!  This exciting event, now in its fifth year, consists of two days of workshops on ground and on horseback for all levels of riding, swordplay, and archery.

New for 2017

Interested in learning mounted combat techniques from the ground but not sure you're ready to make the leap to trying them aboard a living beast with a mind of its own?  This year we have discounted day and full weekend passes for those who'd like to keep their feet firmly on the ground.  For only $75 you get a full day of workshops from the ground, and $199 lets you into all three days.

Prefer to have four feet under you?  Those who want to take part in the mounted workshops and games get a full day for $99 and the whole weekend for $269.  The number of mounted participants is capped at 20, so be sure to register early for this option.
