Reiki in action at the start of a mounted melee battleThat's me on the brown horse in the middle with the small purple stuffed toy duct-tapped to my helm
In case you were wondering, the object of the melee is to hit each other violently about the head and torso with the stick until you dislodge the defenseless stuffed toy on the other riders helm. Its a lot of fun and hard work! Plus the horses also get into pushing the others about and enjoy it.
The horse I am riding was one of the stunt horses used in the Last Samurai movie and he is one of our favourite jousting horses.
