What I remember is that when we saw that this event was in Norco we of The Dreiburgen Light Horse decided to dispense with our tradition of riding to local equestrian events. Though we had made the ten mile ride from House Montrose in Pedley to Norco before, a twenty mile round trip by horse tends to take up much of the day. In the interest of saving time we decided to trailer over two green broke horses that needed some show experience instead.

It was a good day for the Light Horse, we had a lot of fun and and won many of the days contests. Aladric of Litchfield took first in Behead the Enemy, Pig Sticking and Quintain. I still have the Academy medallion made by Baroness Emerald that I won for 1st place Ring Tilting displayed in my living room curio cabinet.
