KNIGHT SCHOOL JOUST TRAINING
For full details, please visit the "Knight School Website".
"Knight School" is regular monthly training session devoted to the schooling of horse, rider and support staff for participation in historical competitive jousting and skill at arms activities, as practiced in the USA, UK, and Europe.
The instructor, Jeffrey Hedgecock of the US, has over 13 years experience in Medieval Horsemanship and Jousting.
He has competed since 2003 in numerous tournaments at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds England, as well as other tournaments in the US, Scotland, New Zealand, Holland, France and Belgium. Jeffrey is an internationally known armourer of 22 years experience and is a founding member of the Order of the Crescent, which has jousted at the Royal Armouries "Sword of Honour" team joust since 2005 and is the only team to win the competition three consecutive years, in 2007, 2008 and 2009 (see also the Historic Enterprises Journal, Issue #2). The Order of the Crescent triumphed at WorldJoust Tournaments' "Tournament of the Phoenix 2009" in a combined competition of jousting, foot combat and club tourney.
In 2008, Jeffrey placed 2nd in the Royal Armouries individual tournament and won the Belgian "Hackaland" tournament, and the French National Tournament at Verneuil sur Avre in 2009.
"Knight School" is held at our practice tiltyard at the Historic Enterprises workshops in Ramona, California, usually on the first Saturday of each month. Ramona is in north San Diego county, 45 minutes from downtown San Diego and about 2 hours south of Los Angeles. Out of town participants are welcome, and pick up at San Diego Airport (SAN) can be arranged. We have hosted attendees from as far away as Pennsylvania and Alaska. We can also recommend local hotel accommodations.
Jeffrey is available to teach clinics and classes at your location. Please contact us for more information and rates.
