Re: [WestKingdomEQ] Re: re grappling from horseback?
- Siobhan,Let's move this discussion off-list. I was at the Brown's Valley practice where these activities were introduced and all the proper steps have been taken. There have been several opportunities to learn more about these exercises at the practices or have this discussion before either of the previous practices.As always, I encourage any senior marshal with concerns about activities in the West Kingdom to contact me directly.-HamishFrom: Dianne Karp <diannekarp@...>

So, we have been given permission to do choreographed drills which involve removing someone from the top of a horse?SiobhanSiobhan ni Seaghdha, OP Dianne KarpOn Tue, Feb 12, 2013 at 12:16 PM, Nancy Reimers <nancyreimers@...> wrote:We won't be doing open sparring with the grappling or long sword work, but rather performing choreographed drills based on historic techniques.It's not fighting.

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
