The weapons are real. The action is real.
the full force, full contact medieval joust to the discipline and grit of the early 20th century New Zealand Mounted Rifles, The Order of the Boar
is New Zealand’s own cavalry re-enactment group.
We specialise in recreating various aspects of history emphasising the role of the horse and rider.
We pay particular attention to horse welfare while also portraying our activities as historically accurate as possible.
We are best known both locally and internationally as one of the pioneers in rediscovering the art of medieval jousting and its development as a modern sport both in New Zealand and around the world.
While we have a particular emphasis on the medieval period, we also portray the role of the horse
in military history. So in addition to the medieval period, we also portray 16th Century Border Reivers
and First World War New Zealand Mounted Rifles.
We portray our activities at public displays throughout New Zealand. Our flagship event is the Harcourt Park World Invitational Jousting Tournament which we hold every two years in Upper Hutt. Our members also compete regularly in both jousting tournaments in New Zealand and around the world.
