Knight on staggering beautiful horse trained for agility and stamina perfect for jousting.

Shot taken during the Medieval Encampment of Campen (Kampen the Netherlands) featuring: Ridders te Paard.

Unfortunately no joust tournament nor a Medieval Fair will be held this year in the city of Kampen. Due budget cuts….
Lots of attractions are lost now.
Many tourists won’t come to Kampen and go elsewhere. Same for me.

Used Micro Soft Picture It: Old old very old version.
Several layers. The trace tool was used, all done with the mouse no automatically tracing, to cut out the knight and horse. Patience is needed.
After using the smooth edges tool the shape was pasted on the first layer, which was set on dark.

    Awesome capture and processing Annet. What a shame that the town are stopping it.
    A similar thing happened near us. Stopped the jousting and the Civil war re-enactment at Powderham Castle. :-((

  • that’s such great compliment Richard thank you lots..the processing I tried it out in photoshop and MS picture it and the best….is a combination of both :)) it’s complicated but it worked :) xx
    such a shame that those cultural attractions have to stop isnt it? Hope that better times will change that for the best..

    Wo yes wo there horsey.
    How does he stay on Annet? I remember getting on a camel in Morocco with a pal and the feeling we got as he stood up back legs first – we near toppled over his head. Your guy looks very brave to me! GREAT capture and a fav for me.
    Love Colleen2012

  • Brave knight and excellent rider like his fellow knights amazing show! Thank you Colleen, I don’t know how he stays on the horseback and will never try it myself :))
