Here’s an interesting video demonstrating a Polish Cavalry Lance Drill (Lt. Robert Woronowicz. Krakus’ uniform) that was posted our International Cavalry Association FaceBook page.
Teaching a horse to tolerate firearms, sabres and tent pegging lances can be a fairly interesting task. Teaching a horse to quietly tolerate lance drills like this can be even more interesting (and usually is). If properly done, the result is a horse that will tolerate pretty much anything. It will also teach the rider better balance and confidence in the saddle.
Keep an eye on my blog – I am starting work on a video demonstrating how to teach a horse to tolerate lance work.
