What is Tentpegging?

There will be a demonstration of Tentpegging at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, an event marking the monarch’s 60-year reign, in Hyde Park on 4th June 2012. A troupe of British riders will be displaying the 2,500 year old cavalry sport originating in Asia that uses lances, swords and guns on horseback. Tentpegging is the collective name for mounted skill at arms, primarily based on the military practice of raiding enemy camps.

Have a look at this Tentpegging video…
