Mounted skill at arms is an exciting and skillful sport. Like many equestrian disciplines, it has its roots in the military.
Disciplines are many and involve riding at the canter and gallop, on the flat and over jumps, with weapons such as sword, lance or pricker. Points are awarded for striking targets, speed and style.
