This needs all the support you can give, so please pitch in!

We have the chance to create a truly historic event, the first of it’s kind, combining some of the most challenging disciplines in existence, riding, martial arts and historical research. Fifteenth century German fencing manuals call the art of combat on horseback Rossfechten. This means not just fighting on horseback but horse and rider fighting as one. To return this to life is our ultimate goal.

We are a group of  HEMAists (Historical European Martial Artists)   accomplished riders and re-enactors who are passionate about reconstructing mounted combat from period sources in the interest of better understanding our history and heritage.

We welcome every one of you to attend, but understand that not everyone can. If you would love to come but cannot  please make  this possible for others. Your donations can make this event successful and most importantly annual so we can hope to see you in the future. You can take our event from obsure and academic to EPIC!
