The Joust!

This year I have a season pass to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire (expect lots of pics). It's only about 20 minutes and two turns from my driveway. I took Zoe for a few hours on Saturday to catch a couple performances and watch the Ulimate Joust at the end of the evening. Too bad it was a bit dark out to get really good photos. These are still fun. Can't wait to go back for more!

Very cool photos Jen!
Sometime I'll have to show you some photos of my Mare Windsor Blue and myself, doing our Renaissance thing at the Tournament of Horses here in California, years ago. :-)

Fabulous! I LOVE going to Renaissance Faires - do you dress up for them? Sometimes I do, and then sometimes I don't. Depends on how I'm feeling. I absolutely love the joust. Thanks for sharing your photos. Theresa

Most Awesome! :0)
I am really looking forward to the pics.
I really enjoyed my visit to the Ren Faire in Colorado this summer. And am anxious to move back so the Ren Fest visit will once again be an annual summer event. Wonder if they have season passes....

Enjoy yourself!

Great action shots Jen !! I LOVE Renfaire! Often go dressed up, although this year I'm changing from wench to huntress I believe. I've got a pretty cool idea and just need to buy this really awesome leather bodice.

Last year's renfaire I talked to one of the Jousters he was riding a Percheron so I had lots of questions. He was gracious and even offered me a ride. I politely declined as I was with my family and they were hot and tired.

Great set of photos, and cool-looking experience! Those must be some very calm, steady horses. I like the little palomino:-)

Wonderful images Jen! Jousting is one of my favorite things at Ren Faires! I was looking forward to getting some great shots of our jousters at Olde World this year, instead I found that directing the Faire and taking photos aren't easy to combine. :0(
