Spring Equestrium April 27-30 Los Osos, CA
- Come one, come all! Enjoy a weekend learning about all things
equestrian in the SCA. Bring yourselves, horses if you have
them and a thirst for knowledge of the equestrian arts.
This will be a Colligium format. Some of the classes are:
Jousting, Single Sword, Horse 101/201, Buying Your First SCA
Horse, EQ Marshalling Standards and (Un)Mounted Drill.
The really nice website that Juliana has created for this event will
be ready to go live soon, and will have a full class list as well as
trail maps and other handy info. If Juliana offers to make you a

rental horses for trail rides; you must make arrangements in
advance (I can give you the stable information, you book the
ride). This site is NOT suitable for rider authorizations, please
attend one of your local EQ practices if you need to authorize.
