> This Sunday Evening, at the Grand Tournament of Horse & Falcon, there will be Hobby Horse Races and Games! Oh My! So come join us at the (area to be determined, probably Equestrian Arena) for this fundraiser for the Calontir Ministry of Youth. Funds raised will support such things as Lilies Youth Activities, the Teen Tent, and More! Come out and support our youth by donating for a chance to ride a noble steed (of the felt persuasion), sponsor a rider to ride in your honor, or just to support our Youth! We will play at the games that you shall see earlier that day, based upon medieval training techniques for equestrians. There will be a Grand Hobby Horse Processional through camp before the start of the activities, so if you’d like to claim a steed, be sure to find me earlier that day (I’ll likely be near or in the equestrian arena all day.) There will even be SNACKS (additional snack donations welcome). So come out for a night full of fun, excitement, and PONIES!
> ALL Donations will be for the Calontir MOY. YOUTH and Adult participation is encouraged!
> Full Disclosure: Grand Procession idea inspired by the ever glorious Ealdormere cavalry seen at this past year’s Gulf War. Many thanks to Their Graces Nigel and Adrielle for always providing inspiration for shenanigans.
> Second Full Disclosure: Sponsoring a rider or donating for the chance to ‘ride’ does NOT INCLUDE actual equine living and breathing steeds. These will be hobby horses of the medieval variety made of cloth and wood. :-) Just so everyone is clear – these will be HOBBY horse games.
> Third Full Disclosure: This will take the place of my normally scheduled “Youth and Equine Meet & Greet”. However, Kacey of the Flaming Hooves will still be in attendance for any youth (or adult) to meet. So be sure to come over and give his nose a friendly pat!
