Chivalry tournaments reenacted at Sankt Wendel, Germany

I came across the website of master of martial arts and historical riding Arne Koets, and from there I found this documentary  - The Grand Tournament at St. Wendel - that I would like to share with you.

Arno Koets site
more St. Wendel films  - 1, 2, 3 .. with reenactors like Dominic Sewell, Luke Binks, Tobias Capwell, Joram von Essen,   Petter Ellingsen, Andreas Wenzel et many others.

the saddles researched and  built by Joram van Essen et al.

Program of tournaments in Europe, Canada, Australia, and US this year, via the Jousting Life
Interesting event this summer in Germany
Nice video from Denmark
Free lecture from  Dirk H. Breiding, Assitant Curator, Department of Arms and Armor, The Metropolitan Museum of Art (my most favourite museum in North America :) )on how to mount a horse in armour etc
 Die grossen Ritterspiele zu Schaffhausen

Caveat - jousting is inherently dangerous  and deadly
enjoy :)
