What's wrong with the film a Knight's Tale

A dodgy one because it was in so many ways not meant to be historically correct. So any comments on music and costumes not being right.. DUH! I know a jouster here in the Netherlands recently got a splinter in his eye, so the part about putting your head down before the blow makes sense. The splinte...

Thanks for that info.. I suppose that is also why the skin is fuzzy side up!

Sweet pony! May I ask whether you have ridden him (?) with that sheepkin on? I am wondering if flk would really have used a skin for riding in stead of a saddle. I can't figure out what the use would be. I have seen skins on bare saddle trees, that makes sense as skin is more comfortable than bare w...

Hai! Wij kennen elkaar wel in de wandelgangen van het LARP gebeuren. Ik woon in Friesland en begin voorzichtig rond te neuzen in het reenactment.
