Thanks to everyone who came out for Cynaguan Mounted Games Workshop. I think everyone went home with a good understanding of where their skills are and where they can get to.
For those of you looking for continued training in Mounted Combat Skillz, I'm planning on using Sunday at Beltane (Saturday will be an open ended hunt) to review distance training drills for the horses, basic mounted wrestling safety and techniques, and introductory mounted long sword drills for distance and timing.
The Cynaguan Mounted Flat-work Workshop will be at Brown's Valley this summer - date and facilitators TBA. I will be putting Workshop together geared at honing the riding skills that set you up for that perfect hit or grab. Remember - flat-work is that thing you do between fences (or opponents, or games, or shots, or rings, or...).Else
- I had a fun time this past weekend and MUCH appreciate everyone who shared knowledge, horses and experiences with me. Else thank you for pulling through the weekend. I know you were not feeling particularly healthy ... yet you came and organized for us anyways.
Jean I'd like to thank you again for sharing your lovely farm with us. You always make us feel so welcome when we come to play with you. You freely share your time, knowledge (and horses) with several of us. You are a great friend to the Kingdom - and to me. :)
And DITTO on the yummy lamb. I think it was the mildest lamb I have ever tasted. Perfectly prepared thanks to Ken's ever-amazing cooking skills. Not a lick of it remained, so I am thinking it was a big hit with everyone.
I'd like to echo the idea that we could all use this weekend as a marker on where our flatwork skills could better serve us and our horses. I discussed the idea, with a few of the riders, of breaking down those games patterns for the horses. The desired outcome is so we can begin to get them schooled and fit before we ask them to do some of those tasks at speed.
I enjoy your training journey as much as I do my own. And I particularly look forward to seeing everyone out and about again!
With deepest gratitude,
