Joust of War

The Joust of War is the ultimate contest of skill and courage for the medieval knight.  The Challengers take to the field, knights and horses armored for battle. A challenge is issued and accepted, and the knights battle on horse or on foot, with lance and sword until one knight is vanquished and one claims victory on the Field of Honor.

In this show, the knights once again demonstrate the martial prowess and skill on horseback that made knights legends of their era. The event begins with a series of challenges culminating with the joust itself, where the knights use lance and the power of a charging warhorse to achieve victory.

If there is no clear victor at the conclusion of the joust, the knights may resort to swords on horseback, or move the battle to the ground to fight until one knight is unable to continue.
