First up, Toby Capwell and Will West go head to head in the UK.

Next, my own humble efforts, thrown together today due to the snow outside.

I'm not happy with the music. I have a version with some Pirates of the Carribean music and it is much better.

Cheers

I love these videos, especially the one where the lances don't break and you knock each other out. I am glad you included that in your montage! Big Grin

Yes that looks almost as if there was an explosive charge between their saddle and their rear. Eek! Laughing Out Loud

I would imagine that a really bad landing is a real possibility ! At the very least having the wind knocked out for a while.

The armour and arming clothes must be appreciated on the way down, at least in retrospect ! Probably not much time to think while it's happening though. Wink Laughing Out Loud

Very impressive! I agree that the video of you two knocking each other off the horse is great although I liked it better when I watched it on youtube and could hear the "clash" of steel. Great job all around! Keep it up.

If its the event I think it was, Rod was knocked unconscious and had his shoulder dislocated. I heard it like a train wreck as I entered the arena stands. All I saw was the two of them on the ground. Like WOW!! that was some crazy stuff. I never saw a mild steel breast plate crumple like that. Eek!

Was it at the Dragon Lair 2003 event Rod?

I also enjoyed the clip of the sword cut through the melon while on horseback.

Great videos! That double-kill charge! Surprised Looks dangerous-Lord be praised none was killed.
