The Society of Tilt and Lance Cavalry took to horseback and competed in medieval combat near Millarville on Sept. 25.

Originally meant to be part of the now-cancelled Time Island event at the Millarville Racetrack, the Society of Tilt and Lance Cavalry opted to record their performance of the story Zelos for online streaming.

Going beyond a simple demonstration of chivalry and combat technique, the knights—and their pit crew of squires—performed in the show as medieval knights, pitted against each other by the evil Dark Wizard.

The medieval combat group and Time Island plan to hold an event in 2022.
