Knights in shining armor

 

One of the more impressive shows at the Copenhagen Medieval Market was the Knight's Tournament where four knights on big horses showed their knightly skills. The coup-de-grace was this; two knights riding hard against each other trying to score a hit with the lances. It was of course just for show, so the lances were built to break and they didn't really try to un-horse each other, but it was impressive nonetheless.
