From Baron Malcolm Alberic:

House Montrose was asked if we could run some of the equestrian contests. Drusilla being a A.H.A. show judge and a former 4H leader decided that it was time for Caid Equestrians to test their skill at horsemanship rather than their prowess at marshal activities. She put together and ran a standard Trail Class, which is an obstacle course were the rider must complete a number of tasks at specified gaits.

Mornay & Drusilla trucked over all the polls, Barrels, Jump Standards and other accessories needed for the trail class wail Aladric, Myself and others of TheDreiburgen Light Horse rode the five miles from at House Montrose in Pedley (the current home of the Dreiburgen Archery range) to the Jurupa Equestrian Park in Rubidoux.

Damales Redbeard loves to recount the how he ran the corse. The bridge was the first obstacle of the test and he knew that his horse not being trained for this type of competition would not want to step on to the plywood. Damales then asked Mornay if he could jump it. My father knowing that Damales was an experienced horseman but not aware that he was a Three Day Event Rider said “Sure if you think you can.”

In Damales own words "The bridge was the first obstacle of the test. Then past the fur on the fence into the key hole, pick up the goblet around the barrel and out of the key hole then I don’t remember the rest of the corse. I remember the two obstacles because I had one stride from a standstill, to the bridge then only 2 strides to stop for the cup. The bridge was long and it had to be planed and still have the control to get around the barrel."

He crossed the finished line and looked back at Mornay’s wide eyed open mouthed expression. My father was definitely not expecting a rider of that caliber at an SCA event.

From Damales Redbeard

I believe Mornay’s statement was "sure you can jump it. But if you land on it you are disqualified "
