I like this idea of an equestrian track at Fall Collegium. I'd really
like to see the track have two basic threads: modern basic horse stuff
(safety, intro to tack (the "what is that and what does it do" sort of
thing), and a historical overview class. I'd like the flavor of "This
what they did in period, this is what stuff looked like, these are the
types of horses you'd expect to see", etc, along side of "This is what
we are doing here and know, we do this/that differently than they did
period and here is why, here is what you can expect if you want to be
around/work with/ride a modern horse here in the West".
I'm also in the process of figuring out some costuming issues, and I
will hopefully get my hands on a model horse *soon* to make a mock-up
the trappings in Alcega. I'd be willing to do a "lessons learned" talk
on this. I'd also be willing to help research historical tack et al.
Perhaps Ann and I could work on this?
