Hello SCA equestrians!
When we say that Spring Equestrium has something for everyone we REALLY mean it!
For the newest of equine novices we have FIVE (5) 101 level horse related classes that you DO NOT NEED A HORSE FOR!
For the more experienced equine enthusiast we have SIX (6) 201 level horse related classes that you and your horse can enjoy!
A Challenge Course which will test your horsemanship on the ground and under saddle will be on hand!
We are having a Silk Banner Painting class, a Single Sword class, a discussion on the Period Picnic Project based on the Gaston Pheobus Hunt Book, a Potluck Picnic (prizes awarded for the best period or period-like picnic set up), an after-event BBQ/Revel and more!
Come to the beautiful foothills and enjoy a day of equestrian classes, equine interaction, great FOOD, grand fellowship and FUN! Spring Equestrium will be held at the Pioneer Park Equestrian Arena in the shire of Mountains Gate (Somerset, CA)! It is a beautiful location with lots of shaded picnic areas, a great playground, flush privies, two great arenas and easy trailer parking! We’ll also have pavilions set up to relax under! There are great wineries right up the road from the site if you want to make it a weekend stay. There is also a trailer friendly convenience store/fuel station at the corner! Crash space for people and horses is available on Friday and Saturday night about 20 minutes from the site. We plan to feed “crash space” guests so please RSVP by March 30, 2011 if you need crash space (or just want to come and hang out afterwards). A BBQ dinner will happen after the event on Saturday. If you would like the full schedule please drop us a note!
So head on up the hill and enjoy an amazing and fun event!
