Exciting news: While some critical technicalities still need to be resolved, we intend to provide an EQUESTRIAN ARCHERY DEMONSTRATION at Siege of Talonval.

That’s right, an Equestrian Archery Demonstration.

A group of experienced equestrian archers from Michigan and Indiana will ride a course, shooting at targets as they ride. Some of these individuals will be dressed the garb of those who lived on the Steppes of Eastern Europe and Western Asia.

In addition, a pack donkey will periodically wander our encampment.

Being around horses can be dangerous, especially when archery is added to the mix. Both participants and equestrian area spectators will be asked to sign waivers outlining safety expectations. In addition, participating horses should have an up-o-date Coggins.

If this goes well, we hope to bring even more equestrian to Siege of Talonval in 2019.
