Mounted Combat Intensives

Immerse Yourself in a Mounted Combat Intensive

This forty-hour program offers you the chance to immerse yourself in a full week of mounted combat arts both in and out of the saddle.  Throughout the week you will learn the foundation of our approach to Italian Longsword, English Riding, and Horsemanship. Each day we will develop you as a rider and martial artist through detailed practical and theoretical lessons.

Both experienced and novice riders and swordplayers welcome

There are two streams in the course: one for people with riding experience and one for those without.  We also take into account differing levels of swordplay experience so that complete novices as well as experienced HEMA practitioners will benefit from appropriate levels of instruction.  Experienced Mounted Combat practitioners are welcome to bring their own horses and stabling is available. 

The schedule

The first four days of the intensive includes instruction time on and off the horse, practical work, and clinics. Each day is comprised of two riding sessions on our school horses, practical and theoretical horsemanship, and swordplay instruction.  The final day of the course will include assessments to certify students for further study within the Mounted Combat Program, followed by a fun and relaxed Mounted Combat Playday where participants can put their skills to the test in friendly competition.

À la carte

Shorter courses, from one to three days are available at a cost of $350 per person per day. If you’d like to book your own private or small group intensive, give us a call at 604 304 0201 or email info (at)

The course takes place at the beautiful facilities of Cornwall Ridge Farm in Langley, which features indoor and outdoor riding rings, heated tackrooms and washroom, and a lovely rider lounge for lunches and lectures.

What people are saying

The Mounted Combat Intensive exceeded all expectations. The quality of instruction, pace of lessons, and variety of skills was well adapted to the different skill levels present. I travelled from east coast to west coast and by the end of day one I knew it was money well spent. I will be back, and I will be bring people with me ~ Andrew Newton, West Nova Historical Fencing

I really did enjoy this event so much. I was not prepared to be presented with such a breadth of knowledge and I adored every moment.
