King’s Hunt/Darach Equestrian Championship – March 23-25, 2012
Join us at King’s Hunt for the first equestrian event of the 2012 tournament season! King’s Hunt features Heavies, Rapier, Archery, Equestrian, maybe even Thrown Weapons, Master Baker of the Hunt, the Feast and of course a Free Breakfast on Sunday morning!
Equestrian activities will begin with a trail ride on Friday. On Saturday morning, there will be jousting practice and mounted games in the arena. Then we move to the woods area for our traditional hunt. Using armored combat javelins, we’ll practice attacks on armored foot soldiers, so they get the feel of a real cavalry charge. In the afternoon, we’ll have our own javelin hunt through the woods, followed by the Darach Equestrian Championship. There may be time for mounted archery practice on Sunday morning if folks are interested.

It is easy to miss the entrance and have to circle around. As soon as you see the greens for Rancho San Marcos Golf Course to your right, slow down. The camp shares its entrance off Highway 154 with Rancho San Marcos Golf Course. Take a left once you’ve passed through that entryway. From the North: Take your best route to Hwy 154 (from Hwy 101 or Hwy 246). Follow Hwy 154 up the San Marcos Pass to entrance 5.2 miles past Cachuma Lake Campground.
