My SCA page - Drake Marshall

Greetings, and Well Met!

Welcome to the SCA page of Lord Drake Marshall

I found out about SCA when I was 9 or 10, and since I have been fascinated with knights and swords and castles and just about anything Medieval ever since I can remember, I had to join! I was granted my AoA (Award of Arms) in AS XXXVIII (2003), by our Graces, King Pieter, Rex, and Queen Nan Astrid, Regina.

I am located in the Oaken Region of the Midrealm and participate in events with Dragonsmark and Val d'Azure. My main interests are heavy weapons, equestrian, blacksmithing, and mead-making.

Here is the beautiful saddle that THL Elizabeth Curry (in the Kingdom of Meridies) made for me. It is very comfortable and fits Dennis (the black horse) perfectly. I'll get around to getting some pics of me in my garb using the saddle eventually.

DID YOU KNOW that Medieval Warhorses were NOT the huge, monster size things most people today think they were?!?! Most horses in Medieval times were pretty little. Usally pony sized, for the most part; and even the war horses were probably seldom more than 15 or so hands high. They were massive in MUSCLE and BONE not HEIGHT! In other words, they mostly looked a lot like my Welsh Cobs. To learn more about what Medieval horses were really like, please visit my Barnes and Noble bookstore to see my selection of recommend books on Horses.
