Atkinson Action Horses: Horse Training
Every Wednesday from 29th July
to 2nd September 2015 at 12:00 & 15:00
This summer holiday Royal Armouries have a variety of themed events.
I’ll bring more details when I am aware of them. From the poster it looks like they’ll be looking at myths and legends and putting them in historical context.
Among what you can expect from this six week event are:
- Combat demos
- Dramatic performances
- Collection handling
- Craft activities
- Talks & tours
As well as myths and legends I’d assume there will be real life heroes and villains along for the ride.
And ‘ride’ leads me in to the Horse Training shows by Atkinson Action Horses.
Shows at 12:00 & 15:00 each Wednesday
Family £10.00 (2 Adults, 2 Children)
Each week Mark and Ben Atkinson will be putting novice horses through their paces. Giving everyone a privileged look at their training techniques.
I’ve seen Atkinson Action Horses many times at Royal Armouries in their own shows and as part of the Joust Tournaments. They are world famous with their stunts on Film and TV, you may have recently seen their horses in BBC’s Poldark. The horse ridden by Aiden Turner as Ross Poldark is called Seamus and he even has his own Facebook Page now.
Again I will bring more details regarding these shows when I learn more.
