Horsing Around Again

Sunday morning Gordon, Morgan and I set up the quintain at the stables and tried Woody out on some tilting practice. Not only did he not "blow up" or run terrified from the scary monster, but he really seemed to get in to it after a few passes. Sometimes he ran a bit wide of the mark, but he never shied away. The lance (closet pole) didn't phase him at all. He'll be a great tilting/jousting/cavalry horse once he gets things figured out. Gordon is very happy, needless to say.


  1. Do you have a picture of a quintain? It might be fun for me to try that with Willie, the Wonder Horse - he is pretty close to bomb proof, and I might not fall off of him!

  2. I'll try to get a good picture of a quintain this weekend at the Faire in Fresno, CA...
