Jousting Concussions

Jousting competition at Arundel Castle - August 2014

International jousting competition at Arundel Castle in August 2014. The lances used are solid ash, but with a softer balsa section for the last metre. Original jousting lances were made entirely of solid ash wood, or sometimes hollowed. In this competition achieving a broken lance with a strike to different target areas scores different points. You are not allowed to strike the horse of course.
