What Can I Expect

Go jousting in Scotland! Join this young professional team for a workshop in how to joust like a knight from days of yore. We are offering two-hour, one-to-one jousting lessons for one or two people at this riding centre near Pitlochry.

It's destination Perthshire for these fabulous jousting experiences. Hark back to medieval times in the Scottish Highlands, as you take on the role of brave knight, fearlessly tackling targets with your lance.

You'll have to trust your stead implicitly, but have no fear, these horses are well-versed and well-trained in the art of jousting. They love putting on a good show (and some might say they are the true stars of a jousting tournament!), so you'll be in good hands, or should we say stirrups, with your horse host.

Your human hosts are young, enthusiastic and love what they do. The excitement and adoration for their horses is clear, with a strong bond between horse and rider for each jousting duo. Headed up by Kirsty, this team of jousters will have you on horseback with a lance in your hand in no time.

Now comes the tricky bit. Using the lance, you'll be trying to knock off the targets as you canter on by with your horse. All eyes will be on the wooden shield hanging from the stand. Stay focused. Stay balanced. Your horse will lead you there and ‘bam!' your lance touches the target and it falls to the floor. Success!

Once you've got the hang of this jousting lark there'll be no stopping you. It'll be the sound of hooves cantering and the yelps of delight, as you continue to hit the targets lined up. You can even get dressed up as a knight to really get into the swing of things!

Then it's time to add another string to your bow, with a wee session in sword skills. After all, any Scottish knight worth their salt will be a top jouster and skilled sword fighter too. You'll practice handling the swords on the ground, before moving on to wielding your weapon whilst on horseback. A brilliant way to round off your two hours of jousting in Scotland!
