Learn to ride like a knight! The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an international, non-profit, educational society celebrating pre-17th century history. The focus of this site is about the Equestrian community within the SCA located in the Kingdom of Caid which encompasses Southern California, Hawai’i and Southern Nevada.
The Kingdom of Caid is one of 19 Kingdoms, located throughout the Knowne World, within the Society for Creative Anachronism. Equestrian activities in Caid include mounted combat, tent-pegging, jousting, tilting at the quintain, mounted archery, and the ring tilt, just to name a few.
In order to hone their war skills, knights would attend tournaments – public festivals full of pageantry and color – designed to simulate warfare and provide knights with a place to practice their skills of fighting and horsemanship while demonstrating military prowess and bravery.
Ever wish you could relive the tournaments of old? Here’s your chance!
In 2012, equestrians in Caid are invited to attend the following events:
- March 23-25, 2012 – King’s Hunt in Carreg Wen — multiple equestrian activities, including the Darach Equestrian Championship
