From Memorial Day weekend until June 27th, Broken Plow Pittsburg Sword Fighters hosted Peter Als Nerving and Fanni Baranyi and their Historical Equestrian Martial Sports Seminar at Double M Gaited Horses in Renfrew, PA. Each weekend they taught swordfighters how to ride and the basics of mounted combat. I got a chance to attend the first seminar and to chat with Peter and Josh about HEMS and the Seminars.

You can find more information about HEMS in the Historical Equestrian Martial Sports Facebook group found here. Double M Gaited Horses can be found on Facebook as well at https://www.facebook.com/Double-M-Gaited-Horses-471572742883919.
