After spending a lot of time in boats, Inner State has decided to come ashore and go riding. Dobbin and Whinny the hobby horses are in the stable and ready to trot about at your event in various guises to suit the theme. These two horses were originally intended for medieval characters but some other riders want to get in on the act. So far the cowboys have saddled them up, the Victorians have taken them out around the estate, and there’s even a show jumping and dressage team.

ST GEORGE
St George mounted on his trusty steed, Dobbin, is out to defend himself against the ferocious dragon he has heard about. Surely it can’t be this sweet little dragon which the rather mature Maiden has found?

THE GREATHAMS
Lord and Lady Greatham are riding out to the tournament. Ready to greet the peasants along the way. As usual, Sir Henry is having trouble handling his sword and is unlikely to win any prizes today.

THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF BLUFFINGHAM
Lord Bluffingham, the Viceroy of The Isle of Sheppey
(or … somewhere nearby) and his lovely lady wife ride out to inspect the troops, or merely to ride roughshod over the local riff raff.

RADDLE THE JESTER
As far as jesters go, Raddle is not a great success. The Duchess of Wormwood is on the warpath and is threatening to sack him and get a replacement.

SHOW JUMPING AND DRESSAGE TEAM
This highly trained pair of riders are ready to tackle any obstacle, or crack in the pavement to show off their jumping skills. They may also be persuaded to demonstrate the fancy footwork of their talented horses in the equine dressage event ... sometimes without stumbling.


Two aged gun slingers have arrived in town from a rough ride out there on the range. Dusty, and ready for a drink. Yee-haw!

But who is this dangerous looking Mexican character in the big hat, lurking around the back of the saloon?


Only time to grab a Stetson and a gun, the two cowboys are on the run and looking for somewhere to hide … and hopefully some new clothes.
