Knights, ladies and squires welcome to your jousting experience! Step back in time to Ye Olde England and learn some rather noble sporting skills both on foot and horseback during these fabulously theatrical experiences.Yes, that’s right honourable ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to hone your jousting skills and more besides when you spend the day at Jousting School. It all takes place in an equestrian arena in the shadows of a certain Warwick Castle, making for the perfect backdrop to your day of Medieval fun.Of course, jousting wasn’t just for fun back then. It was a chance for young knights to shine, to win the hand of a fair maiden, to receive praise from the King. And if you failed miserably, you might have ended up in the stocks - a shameful sight for a Knight indeed.Now you might think that being skilled a horseman is a must when it comes to being able to joust against your opponent. Well, it’s true you’re sure to have a distinct advantage if you have any experience in the saddle, but it’s not a must-have prerequisite to be able to participate and enjoy yourself. And indeed, the horses used on these jousting experiences are so well-trained and used to their role running the gauntlet with young cavaliers that they are a joy to ride and will soon become your very trusted partner.But this jousting experience isn’t just about skills in the saddle. There’s a lot to learn on the ground too. There’s the small matter of a (choreographed) sword fight and you might even be called upon to unleash a few arrows with your longbow. But essentially this day is all about learning to joust. So, pull on your armour, reveal your titled Knight’s name and get ready for battle as you learn to hit the dastardly quintaine, skilfully use your lance to collect the rings from the tilt (that’s the fence along the jousting run) and even try your hand at a pig sticking competition!Yes, this jousting experience is that sort of immersive, authentic day out where you get to play knights of the realm, tutored in complete safety by a team of highly skilled stunt horsemen and women. Once your rookie status has been removed after the morning’s training, the afternoon starts with a Gauntlet Challenge where you try to score points on horseback against your fellow newbies.Your action-packed jousting experience culminates in a head to head meeting with the Black Knight - on horseback. This is your chance to shine and attract the attention of the King with your new-found mounted skills in the mini-joust challenge. Lower your visor, raise your lance and with a cry of ‘huzzah’ you’re off!
