Re: Dog collars

First of all, how can you talk of a lurcher and not give us a picture? I haven't seen any depictions of collars for dogs or anything, however I'd think it'd be something simplistic. To me, I'd put the comfort of the dog first, instead of authenticity. Hell, I'd even walk the dog in a pink fluffy col...

Re: How to use lances

So what happens if your horse bucks or gets spooked? And didn't that happen to someone at Kelmarsh, they walked right into the zone of don't go as horses are doing a final canter / gallop along the crowd line area.

Re: How to use lances

If the saddle is so awful for jumping, isn't there something you can do other than not jumping to lower the risks? That video is absolutely brilliant! He clearly isn't in his right mind to take on a horse like that haha. And is that a Hospitaller I see (Red field, white cross and looks to be in a Ca...

Re: How to use lances

Hi, Well then, you are certainly the man to ask. I am a modern rider myself (dressage, jumps, etc etc) and I wonder what sort of style would they have used? As I've seen some depictions of knights (1066, 1257, 1450s) of them having completely straight legs, even when they don't have a high cantle on...

Re: Armour stand

Hi, To stop it from falling over you make the feet more further apart, or longer. What I use is just flat feet spanning about 2ft in all four directions.

Re: Armour stand

Hi, All the ones I've seen (via internet from vendors and re-enactments) are pretty basic, as all that I've seen change on them is their feet and type of wood. The essentials for an armour stand is height and shoulder width, I'd measure yourself as the harness would be fitted to you. The sort of siz...

Re: Armour stand

Hi,

Right, if you want a historically accurate one, I suggest looking for some depictions of one in manuscripts around 1300-1500, however I have made one using modern methods and a homemade design, but in the end you don't see it anyway so it wouldn't matter that much.

Standards, Pennons, and Banners

Hi all!

I'm wanting to create some pennons, banners, and various other heraldic displays. But unfortunately I can not find any proper sources for ones that would be used around 1250s, such as how to make them, common measurements, etc.. etc... Any help would be brilliant.

Re: linen webbing for girths/surcingales

Hi, I don't re-enact a horseman, but I'm pretty sure they just use modern saddles. Anyhow, I think you'd need a strong material like leather for the girth as that's the thing that stops you (And saddle) from falling off. I wouldn't risk using something like linen or fabric such as that as it's not i...
