Fellow Cavalry Students;
Due to various scheduling problems and just an overwhelming number of other events happening at around the same time, I'm canceling the Cavalry Class previously scheduled for Oct. 30. If folks really want to get together that day to do some drill at my stables, we can do that, but trying to manage an organized event will cause too many difficulties at present.
For those who want to engage in a much-abbreviated version, this coming Saturday (October 2) I shall be holding a short class and drill for the SCA Kingdom of the West's Equestrian Group in Livermore.
For more information and directions on that, please contact Rachael Kiesh at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or Toni Whyte at this address: email@example.com
Thanks for your patience, and we shall do some serious calendar-meshing to find a good date for the Spring!

Ah, it's every military historian's dream. Well, almost every historian, anyway. If you're like Gordon, the best of the best is to do horse cav AND get paid for it. Unfortunately, a lot of the big horse pics are going overseas for reasons I will not rant about at this juncture. Needless to say, it's been a few years since we had a juicy cavalry project (the recent episode of "Command Decisions" for the Hitler Channel hardly counts). At any rate, here's a fun article from our friends at Archaeology magazine about an Oxford historian and horsey boy who's been working for Oliver Stone on the new "Alexander" project.
Due to some rather large scheduling conflicts, the Fall Cavalry Class is now canceled. Sorry for the late notice! There are plans being formulated for a Spring Seminar, possibly a multiple-day event, that will cover a great deal of material and be organized by skill level. Stay tuned...
