Equestrian Practices for 2015 will be held on the schedule below. Practice is presided over by Lord Michael de Quarmby.
Most practices are the first Sunday of the Month, but not all are the first Sunday due to event conflicts.
Practice will begin at 2:00 PM, but may shift as necessary to avoid the hottest parts of the day primarily during the Summer.
Notification will go out for any time changes or date changes.
Location: St. Francis Farm, 1400 Market Street, Martinsville, IN 46151
The farm is located south of Mooresville, IN just off Highway 67. It is about 20 minutes away from I-465.
Riding facilities are a medium sized outdoor oval arena, a large grass arena, and a very small indoor arena. Rain will force practice to the inside arena which may modify planned activities.
To ride at the practice you must already know how to catch, groom and saddle a horse without help. If you have no horse experience, please come and learn. Perhaps this first experience will set you off on the path that brings horses into your life.
Horses are available for use from the farm at a cost of $10 per rider. You may bring your own horse, but the property does not allow stallions due to liability issues. Everyone will take a turn at riding and at resetting games.
Everyone must sign the SCA equestrian waiver and the stable waiver.
Children are allowed and under current rules. Those over 8 may ride with a parent present. All children need to be under supervision.
