Tent Pegging

Tent pegging (sometimes spelled "tentpegging" or "tent-pegging") is a cavalry sport of ancient origin, and is one of only ten equestrian disciplines officially recognised by the International Equestrian Federation. Used narrowly, the term refers to a specific mounted game with ground targets. More broadly, it refers to the entire class of mounted cavalry games involving edged weapons on horseback, for which the term "equestrian skill-at-arms" is also used.

Famous quotes containing the word tent:

    When I from black and he from white cloud free,
    And round the tent of Godlike lambs we joy,

    I’ll shade him from the heat till he can bear
    To lean in joy upon our father’s knee;
    And then I’ll stand and stroke his silver hair,
    And be like him, and he will then love me.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
