Did you know:   Sir Anthony, a skilled Jouster,  has a lifetime of competing and training horses in  several different disciplines.  He is a member of the Kryal Castle Mounted Knights team in Australia since 2014, where Sir Anthony trains with the accomplished and well known knights  Sir Phillip Leitch, Sir Cliff Marisma, Sir David Williamson and Sir Justin Holland.

And there’s more:   Sir Anthony also  runs training days for riders and their horses in skill-at arms, joust, general horsemanship and other disciplines.  He has now added International status to his achievements due to a recent invite from Sir Charlie Andrews to Sonora Celtic Faire in the United States.  This  style of jousting is known as ‘heavy jousting’ with solid lances.  His aim is to ride that perfect pass and feel the perfect break of the lance.
