Maryland State Sport Jousting


Ring jousting is the Maryland State Sport. In the 1950’s I played charge for the Barnesville St. Marks Jousting Tournament. This year I went back to Barnesville to photograph some of the jouster. This genteman’s lance has already gotten one ring. On this ring his lance is just going through the ring while it is still suspended from the holder. Notice how involved the horse looks. Barnesville has hosted a tournament every year for the past 150 years.ment every year for the past 150 years. This is a real family sport with some families having riders from three generations competing.
