"How To Ride Before A Prince" 

This is a class in 3 sessions- the first session is an unmounted presentation class, the second is an hour of mounted practice to experiment and develop a pattern, with a third hour later to put your new skills to a test. "How To Ride Before a Prince" is based on 16th and 17th century manuals written to instruct noblemen how to train, ride and present themselves as fitting to their noble station.  The movements are drawn from the patterns and instructions found in period manuals, designed to build the technical riding skills needed for mounted military service.   When demonstrating one's prowess before a Prince, the rider chooses those movements which emphasize the best qualities of the rider and mount.  (Competitor Handout) (Judge Handout) (Organizer Handout)

Instructor

Alexis Garrigues: I’ve been riding for much of my life, and have been in the SCA for 30 years.  About 14 years ago, I put these two interests together, and have really been enjoying learning about the many ways that horses were involved in medieval life.  As a stage costumer, I’m particularly interested in how horses and riders were dressed for various activities, and what that attire communicates to those who view it. 

Maitresse Annisa Gabrieli is a 14th century noblewoman who loves to ride.
