ise  Saito and Ise's Equestrian Activities  otas

Ise and I are now adding to our long list of hobbies! We have been doing S.C.A. equestrian activities for many years now.  These activities include lancing, archery, spear throwing, axe throwing, and tests of sword skills all from horse back (or in our case from Mule back).   We are even now doing mounted combat, crest combat, foam and wood jousting.  We make almost all the things we use so if you looking for how to's tbis page has plenty. And feel free to contact us for more info on something you cant find here. If we dont make it we probably know someone who does or knows how.  

We are riding in Calontir. To find out more about the Calontir equestrian site and calendar click here
