Jousting Display ~ Templecombe Medieaval Fayre, June 2008
The Templecombe Medieaval Fayre was an eclectic event with sword combat, a re-enacted battle, stalls, falconry, belly dancing and jousting. I have previously posted about the belly dancing *here* and the battle *here*. The jousting was a very professional show, combining horsemanship, traditional jousting and combat skills with comedy. As ever there was a 'good' knight and there was a 'bad' knight who coveted the prize of the crown at any cost and received many a 'boo' from the crowd of spectators.
The knights completed many tests including jousting, spearing items on the ground from horseback, hitting targets and armed combat. Of course the 'bad' knight tried to cheat to secure the crown but in the end of course he didn't win it.
I am off for a few days to Edinburgh taking a well earned break so I won't be around in blogland this week to visit. I just finished my last job and it was a mad rush to get everything finished before I left so I need a rest! I am looking forward to Edinburgh very much as it looks like a beautiful city.
While I am away I am leaving the photo above for your consideration. It is one of those photo's that I have taken that is begging for a caption, so go ahead and use your imagination! The competition will run while I am away and I will pick a winner on my return next Saturday (which also happens to be my birthday). The winner will get a pretty postcard, handwritten from me and sent via snail mail (so note, if you win you'll need to send me an address to receive your prize). So get inventive and get captioning and good luck :) I'll see you all when I get back!
