Praticing French cavalry charges for Minden 1759-2009

A short video clip of a training session where we started to practice some of the French cavalry charge routines for Minden 2009. We are in modern gear.

Now they just have to try it on the psycho Euro nags :wink:


Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

I am sorely tempted. Originally it was going to be the Corunna event that weekend, but most UK units (ourselves included) have pulled out.

I'm not sure, but I think the misses may have something else planned for that weekend, but in an ideal world I'd be there.

I may do Napoleonic, but I'm thinking 7YW :wink:

I think a War of Jenkins' Ear reenactment society is long overdue :D

As I posted before on the Lacewars forum, damm good fun it was too! Very put out that I cannot make Minden but am committed to a previous engagement. Oh well :roll:


I'm in my own world, its ok they know me here.
