The Academy shall be governed by a Board of Regents numbering up to five, nominated by the Academy, and approved by the Crown. These Regents are to be a source of information and expertise in equestrian arts within and without the SCA. The Regents will select one of their number as Minister to administer the Academy.
A staff of officers shall support the Academy: the Secretary, the Exchequer, the Chronicler, and the Sexton.

COLLEGE OF EQUESTRIAN ARTS IN CAID
Equestrian events will be held at the May Coronation Tourney in the North1 & a second Equestrian Tourney is being planned for early October in the North. Caid is presently organizing its own events, to include costume competition, parade groups & trail rides, among other activities. Anyone interested may contact any of the officers for the Caid College of Equestrian Arts:
- Chief Deputy for Caid: Cliveden d'Cheux
- Assistant Deputy: Mistress Bevin Fraser of Stirling
- Assistant Deputy: Kerisa of Silverwolf
The Master of Equestrian Arts for the Kingdom is Duke Henrik of Havn (http://history.westkingdom.org/Who/Who-H.htm#634). His Lieutenant is Daniel de Leon.
QUINTAIN, the publication for the College of Equestrian Arts, is request material & ideas for future issues concerning the horse in heraldry, ancient tournament rules, mythical horseplay, farriery, saddles & tack, dressage & more. Vol. 1, #1 seemingly is already available, according to the flyer send to The Crown Prints, but no price is listed: ask.
Evidently one does NOT have to own a horse to become a member of the College of Equestrian Arts--check on that, however.
