Episode 26 - Horsey HEMA
From Memorial Day weekend until June 27th, Broken Plow Pittsburg Sword Fighters hosted Peter Als Nerving and Fanni Baranyi and their Historical Equestrian Martial Sports Seminar at Double M Gaited Horses in Renfrew, PA. Each weekend they taught swordfighters how to ride and the basics of mounted combat. I got a chance to attend the first seminar and to chat with Peter and Josh about HEMS and the Seminars.
