Le Recherche de Printemps: a Spring Quest

Join the Barony of Madrone and the Madrone Equestrian Guild as we gather to banish Winter and herald the new Spring!

Equestrians and revelers a-foot of all ages are welcome to join in the fun as we follow a course of challenges and tasks through the sylvan glades and forest trails around Griffinwood Stables, just outside Olympia, WA.

Vanquish the Ice Knight and Quest for Spring! Gather flowers and demonstrate your prowess in the handling of your horse or your own feet as you meet the challenges on your quest! Impress the gatekeeper with your wit as you recite a story, poem, song or joke about spring (extra points if there's a horse in it of course, and extra, extra points if it's period)! Again, equestrians and non equestrians alike are encouraged to come and join in the fun...there will be something for everyone. We've marked out lovely trails for hiking and riding, at every level of challenge from a quiet amble along a wooded road to Man from Snowy River trails, complete with a creek crossing. You can even come and just play the games, whichever suits your fancy. We will have dancing (regular people dancing or on horseback if you prefer ;)) starting at 5pm in the covered arena, demos of jousting and other equestrian games, and a wide variety of contests silly and serious. Rain or shine, this promises to be a fun, easy going event of frolicking, frivolity and good old fashioned SCA fun!
