We had a little bit of real-daily life, unscripted drama Saturday at the Joust of Talent. Mauldron’s horse, Sunstorm, tripped! I assume each spectator gasped in unison as Sir Mauldron threw himself from the saddle and rolled to the ground. YouTube video clip (not my video, I just located it. Close to the finish of the joust, you can hear someone shout "Go, Gregory!"- that’s my daughter).
Sunny is okay, Mauldron is alright. I missed the picture of the fall since I was waiting on him to round the conclude of the tilt lawn and arrive again up on our side (in the course of the "work up the crowd" part), so I observed the trip by way of my digicam, but when I realized what was happening (partially blocked see- a publish was there), I decreased my camera to see him tumble to the floor.
Even a person who doesn’t do this could tell he understood how to drop and he rolled with it. He stood up, checked Sunstorm over, acquired back in the saddle and completed his responsibilities. And I took this shot of him wearing the tilt lawn grime.
The best element was right after he checked the horse about, he kissed him on the nose and obtained back again in the saddle. I hope the individuals who had been at their initial joust appreciated the excitement it brought to the day!
