Jim Dandy Shadow has been with Paragon Jousting since 2007. Shadow is a 15.2 hand solid black American Paint Horse born in 2000. This jousting superstar also rides side-saddle, jumps and drives. He’s been a warhorse for a number of different jousters but spends most of his time as the mount for Dame Fiona. The evil knight of Orkney probably chose him because he is all black with a cross shaped star on his forehead.
Shadow has been featured in Paint Horse Journal and on the cover of the Mid-South Horse Review. He has performed in hundreds of joust shows including at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire, New York State Faire, Fort Bragg Renaissance Faire, Illinois Renaissance Faire, Mid-South Renaissance Faire and many others.
