Why not take a break from Jousting and come and try your hand at the other specialist skills that we teach here at the Knights of Middle England. Whether it is your first time or you have been before anyone can come and have a go on our specialist Workshops! The emphasis of these workshops is to have some fun whilst getting to grips with doing something a bit different on the back of a horse! 


Morning - Trick Riding - 2½ hours


Come and take part on one of our half day Trick Riding Workshops.

Taught by our fully trained and qualified, equity registered, resident stunt man Emmanuel Lafon.


Within the safety of our enclosed arena with specially trained horses on the lunge you will learn the basics of classical vaulting techniques performing gymnastic manoeuvres on the back of a moving horse. Then progress on to the authentic Cossack trick riding saddle learning a variety of basic vaults, tricks and stands.


Afternoon - Horse Archery - 2½ hours


For the ‘Knights of Old’ it was not enough to be skilled in jousting and sword fighting, it was also necessary to master the art of archery on horseback!


Taught by qualified archery instructors, you will first learn to use your longbow from the ground learning to nock and blind nock and master speed loading your arrow. Then mount one of our specially trained horses and practise nocking on the move as you ride down the archery run unleashing your arrows upon the targets.


SPECIAL OFFER – Book onto both the Trick Riding and the Horse Archery sessions to receive a discount on your booking!!


Only limited spaces are available so BOOK NOW to avoid disappointment!
