Knights tournaments

We offer the knights tournaments that we perform in the form of stories. They consist of a number of optional disciplines in which the horsemen show their riding and fighting skills. Whether it is slicing a flying apple with a sword from a galloping horse, spiking burning rings, an attack on an infantryman or a rescue of a comrade, always it is only a small fraction of the entire portfolio of disciplines that the knights can perform. There is always an evil knight who challenges others to fight to the death, to joust.This fearful discipline, in which the knights knock each other down from the horseback with lances, is the highlight of the whole tournament. Who will be the winner? Of course, the best knight will. The entire tournament is commented by a herald, who guides the spectators throughout the show.The atmosphere is supported by impressive music that is provided from our own sound equipment.
