From The Page (June, 2014):

“In a suburb immediately outside one of the gates there is a field that is smooth, both in name and in fact. Every Friday (unless it is an important holy day requiring solemnity) crowds are drawn to the show and sale of fine horses. This attracts the earls, barons and knights who are then in the city, along with many citizens, whether to buy or just to watch.” William Fitz-Stephens "Description of the City of London" (1170)

Come join us in the shady, covered arenas of Double N Ranch to recreate the wonders of the Smithfield Horse Market from the 12th through the 16th Centuries. Class lists, class prices and rules can be found at: (website address omitted)
