Spur of the Moment Jousting would be nothing without our equine partners. A quality joust or gaming horse is not a specific breed but is an animal with a certain combination of training, attitude and heart. Our horses have come from a variety of training backgrounds: Dressage, Polo, Eventing and several are rescues. Our horses love what they do.
Our Equine Partners
Ozymandias is a Gypsy Sport Horse (Gypsy Vanner/Paint cross) and is the youngest member of the herd being foaled in 2008. While only 15.1hh, Oz is a tank and has not even completely filled out completely yet. He is one of our most consistant partners on the rail. He can be a bit 'unruly' as he takes in all the sites and sounds around him, but once he focuses Oz is a solid jouster!
Augie is an Appendix (TBxQH) and came to us in 2014 as a Polo rescue. Polo horses make excellent jousters. They already come desensitized to thing such as runnin at other horses and have things swung around their heads and Augie is no different! He has proved a delightful addition to our herd and his former training has served him well.
Quincey is a 13 year old Percheron / Canadian Sport Horse cross. Easily our biggiest horse, he came to us in January of 2015 from a background of cross county and jumping. Quincey has taken to the job of jousting like a fish to water.
