Knights of Valour captivate the fair audience with full-contact jousting

(Riverton, Wyo.) – The Knights of Valour put on quite show last night at the 2014 Fremont County Fair. Jousters from the U.S. and Canada, including a couple contestants from the show Full Metal Jousting, ran at each other with long sticks atop horses, occasionally knocking their opponent to the ground. One competitor had to leave the competition due to a freshly broken hand, while another was competing with a healing broken hand.
