Surely you joust?

The lances are designed to break upon impact.
The St George's Day jousting tournament took place after lunch, with much pomp and ceremony.

There was plenty of excitement, with one knight being unhorsed (needing a ladder to remount) and another unluckily taking a lance to the groin!  Full Tilt Entertainment are responsible for both the jousting display and the quad bike battles. 

If you get a chance to see them in action - take it!  There is an event schedule on their website:-
