Nick & Zoe Chat To A Real Life Jouster And Knight In Shining Armour!

It's not every day you get to watch jousting! This morning on Nick & Zoe, they chatted to Phillip Leitch, the current world champion of jousting, who will be at the Sale Show this year showing us all a thing or two!

 

Now, you definitely read that right - medieval jousting will be taking centre stage on Saturday, November 3 at the 2018 Sale Show, with a display of mounted combat and jousting and medieval horsemanship. 

How on earth does someone get into jousting? Well, Phillip always had a passion for the middle ages and martial arts, which developed into doing historical European martial arts with swords, shields and wearing armour. Also having experience with horses, Phillip put the two together! 

There's so many things Nick & Zoe DIDN'T know about jousting and hey, we're kinda impressed!
