information Venue Details

Located just a stone’s throw away from Warwick’s breathtaking medieval castle our venue at the Warwick International School of Riding is the perfect place to saddle up and experience the intense excitement of jousting. This is the original adrenalin activity and, surrounded the sights and sounds of medieval England, you’ll discover everything it takes to become a knight of the realm, regardless of previous experience. Some riding knowledge is an advantage, but an expert team of instructors will be on hand at all times and the horses can adapt to all riding abilities. So if you’ve always dreamt of being a heroic Knight, there’s nowhere better to master a whole host of horseback sports and find out just what it takes to defeat the dreaded Black Knight!

This is an outdoor event so please wear appropriate clothing you don’t mind getting dirty, plus sensible footwear with a flat sole and small heel (no trainers). Anyone with a riding hat is welcome to bring it, but it is not essential. You will also need a pair of gloves and a change of clothes.

Jousting Experience Day

This truly one-of-a-kind experience transports you back to a time when knights ruled the realm and jousting was considered the sport of champions. You won’t just be watching the action unfold though, you’ll be playing a starring role, as you saddle up and set your sights on becoming a heroic knight.

Your incredible medieval masterclass starts with a change into authentic costume and armour, meaning you’ll look and feel like a real-life knight. Then for the really exciting part, as you learn a variety of basic jousting skills and discover how to use your lance to dismount opponents, strike the spinning Quintaine target and collect rings from the tilt.

Like a true knight you’ll also learn essential longbow and sword skills. Fans of films such as Robin Hood and A Knight’s Tale will love the chance to act out their own sword fight with a choreographed battle, before performing for the rest of the group.

In the afternoon put into practice all that you have learnt and show off your skills in the ‘Gauntlet Challenge’ competing in a series of competitions to collect points for your team. But do you have what it takes to pass the final test and defeat the infamous Black Knight to claim your knighthood?
