THE TRIUMPHANT CONCLUSION OF THE 2016 MEDIEVAL MOUNTED GAMES CLINIC SERIES!
January 8, 2016
Kryssi spent the last 6 months teaching students to throw spears, handle a lance and use a sword a'horseback! Each clinic concluded with a competition to demonstrate the student's learned skills, and at the end of the series overall high point prizes were awarded! Prizes were leathercraft goods handmade by Kryssi herself at the Double H Ranch Saddle Shoppe. Congrats to Morgan: High Point Champion, Claire: Reserve High Point, and Andrew: Runner-Up!
A JOUSTING DEMO & CLINIC TO RAISE MONEY FOR AT-RISK YOUTH IN NOCO!
Just what the title says. Kryssi & Bryan (aboard Cherokee and Lachlan) demonstrated light armor jousting for a group of riders. Demo was followed by Kryssi instructing students in the medieval mounted games. This success led to the beginning of the Knights of the Tempest Medieval Mounted Games Clinic Series!
