NOTE: new jousters are expected to serve as Ground Crew for a minimum of one year before jousting.
Knights wishing to compete in tournaments or other events must have their own equipment and possess an acceptable level of horsemanship skills prior to being allowed to compete in events as a STALC member.
For safety reasons, a horsemanship proficiency test, and/or approval and inspection of equipment and armour may be performed at any time at the discretion of the Executive Members.
Also for safety reasons Riders will be required to purchase an Alberta Equestrian Federation Membership. It can be purchased online by going to Alberta Equestrian Federation.
This applies to both Ground Crew and Riders.
STALC strives to reenact jousting as it was in 15th century Europe. This means that all our members are expected to dress the part when in the tiltyard. Our aim is specifically 1430-1500 in countries where the joust was popular (this includes: England, France, and Germany).
New members are not expected to start with a full set of garb, and can usually borrow items from other group members for their first season. It is expected that long term members will acquire their own period-appropriate garb. There are resources within STALC to help you research, make or buy garb as necessary.
