Meet our KNIGHTS!
It is not easy to become a Jouster for Spur of the Moment. All the people that work with us must first "squire" or be trained in horse care and care of their tack. Each horse is unique and has certain special quirks and requirements. As one gets to know their way around horses, those that show aptitude will be given a chance to ride. Potential knights are first trained as equestrians. What we do is different from what most practitioners of other equestrian disciplines are used to. However, like all other equestrian disciplines, horse and rider must be of one purpose when riding through the games and down the Lyst. The rider must learn to communicate with the horse with legs and distribution of their weight so as to have the use of the hands in order to do other things rather than guiding the horse, whether that be swinging a weapon or holding lance and shield. It is not a quick or easy process, and not for everyone.
