Leeds: Event Marshal - Monarchs: Tudor Riding Skills Horse Shows

Here at the Royal Armouries we aim to bring history to life through live performances that are inspired by our world class collection. Queen Elizabeth I will be hosting our special Tudor riding skills horse shows in our outdoor arena over the late May Bank holiday as part of our At the court of Elizabeth I weekend. We need friendly faces to join our cohort and help ensure everyone has a great day. You will be outdoors and in close proximity to horses, re-enactors with fantastic hats and gravity defying hair and excited visitors.
