Historic photo proves early equestrian participation

Those who believe that equestrian activities are new in the Society for Creative Anachronism, will want to pay a visit to the The History of the Kingdom of The West: The First Coronation and Crown Tournament website and view the photo of Henrik of Havn.

The photo of a costumed equestrian was taken March 25, 1967 and is captioned as follows: "Henrik of Havn tries out a new hauberk and 20 lb. shield on a borrowed horse, just before being knighted and then crowned King."

The photographer is unknown, but the picture was contributed by Sir Henrik himself.
