We hosted a mock tournament at the Tournament of Chieftains some years ago (to help raise money for Baronial Equestrian equipment.) It was VERY well-received and lots of fun (for us and the audience.) Three Rivers has had hobby horses as youth toys for quite awhile now and I know that the Lilies/Calontir storage unit has a hobby horse quintain & other equipment.

Someone was taking photos (Vilhelm?) and will be posting them as soon as they're edited. :)

I mentioned an article in the Florilegium about hobby horses, but I've never seen it done in the SCA myself.

Greetings, everyone!

I wanted to send out a BIG Thank You to everyone that came out and supported the Hobby Horse races that took place this weekend. Both Adults & Youth seemed to have a grand time, the snacks were delicious, and the joy was infectious. 

We raised a grand total of $144 in the name of the Calontir Ministry of Youth! HUZZAH! Actual donations were considered more, since several people said they'd forgotten monies at home (you know who you are - give your donations to Mistress Roselyn next time you see her. :) Or, even more valuable - donate your time or money to hosting a Lilies class or activity!)

My head is still spinning from the generosity of this weekend (in more than just this activity). 

Huzzah for Calontir Youth!


Ever In Service,
