Hi Florian, welcome to the forum.

We don't really have anything like a permanent venue in the UK for medieval shows, but many sites do have a season of shows. Places like The Royal Armouries, Warwick Castle and Hever Castle have a run of shows in the summer where a variety of shows and activities are put on for visitors. Although they have their own staff many of the horse shows are run by outside groups so you might want to try contacting the following:

Atkinsons Action Horses
Knights of Royal England
Horses4History
Historic Equitation


Hope that helps a bit and good luck!

Griff

I have heard of many people experting in one aspect of history, but historical domestication, that is a new one on me I will admit. Perhaps you can help in one regard then (and if not then perhaps someone else can) namely "When did cats become domesticated?" I know that dogs became domesticated around the time of the Ice Age or thereabouts but cats, would not have a clue sorry.

Henri, as far as we know, cats seem to have self domesticated. There are neolithic sites in Britain (offhand cant recall which but they are mentioned in the writeup of the Stonehenge landscape that EH brought out a few years ago) that indicate undomesticated wildcats living on the fringes of settlements where presumably they benefited from the increased small rodent population accompanying grain storage. Its thought they very quietly became more used to people, and from our side became familiar parts of a farming settlement until at some stage their opportunistic tendencies and usefulness as rodent control led them to the fireside. Interestingly though not all time periods look favourably on cats indoors, possibly because they are contrary beasts who don't follow orders like dogs do ;) You can also look at the role of cats in Ancient Egypt if your interests include that part of the world
