Mounted Combat & Horseback Archery


Mounted Combat ClassesDevonJennMCtackle

We’re excited to announce our newly formatted Mounted Combat course at Red Colt, starting up in less than a month.  This four-week course takes the skills developed in the Mounted Combat Skills classes and moves them to horseback with sword, spear and grappling plays as well mounted games and drill team work.  The course is limited to those with Green Spurs and up, so if you haven’t got your Green Spur be sure to sign up for the Cavaliere Assessment day on March 1st to earn your spurs — and the ability to play with swords on horseback!

Sundays 8 & 15 March, 9 & 12 April, 1:00 – 2:30pm
$200; individual classes $60 ea

Horseback ArcheryBeginner Horseback Archery

We’re just as excited to be able to welcome back Robert Borsos for another day of the popular Horseback Archery workshops. There will be a Beginners’ course in the morning, followed by the Intermediate workshop in the afternoon.  There are no prerequisites for the Beginners’ class.  For the Intermediate class you must have your Riding Level 1 and have taken the Beginners’ class previously.  You can sign up for both on the same day provided you already have your Riding Level 1.  (Again, sign up for Assessments on March 1st if you want your Level 1).
