Knights in Shining Armor
Yesterday I showed you photos from the draft horse competition. That same day, there were knights in shining armor, jousting.
I was so excited to learn there would be jousting going on the same weekend as the draft horse competition. When Young Living lavender farm first opened, about 15 years ago, I took my boys to a jousting competition there. The guy that owns Young Living is pretty big into jousting, and hosted a competition. It was awesome, and my boys loved it. As you can imagine.
So I was ready for the jousting, and to get some good photos.
This young woman had my utmost admiration. Big gray shire, out playing with the big boys. She was awesome.
This is the dad of the young boy in the above photos. What a great hobby to get your young boy involved with.
And I love how him, and his horse are both laughing.
This is the light armor jousting. The lances are lighter weight, as is their armor. But still, such a thrill to watch.
They had a competition without lances, who could be accurate with a sword….on horseback.
Then it was time for the heavy armor jousting. Full armor, heavy lances.
So cool. We had a blast watching this event. They could do this every weekend, and I would go.
These are a couple of photos I edited with textures. This guy was about 15.

What a fun local event, I hope they do this again while we are in Utah.
