Myrkfaelinn Equestrian Practice
10AM to 5PM on Sunday, August 27th, 2023
Sheffield Farm, Ithaca, NY 14850
Free; donations appreciated to offset cost of insurance.

In preparation for A Day of Tournaments which includes the Kingdom Equestrian Championship ( to be held the weekend of September 8 to 10th, the Dominion of Myrkfaelinn has organized an Equestrian Practice. It will be held Sunday August 27th, 2023 at Sheffield Farm near Ithaca, NY, and will give equestrian participants the opportunity to authorize in general riding and mounted games.

Mistress Ysabeau Tiercelin is the Marshal in Charge (MiC) and will bring game equipment, including heads, reeds, spear, rings, quintain and birja.
This way both the equestrian participants as well as the ground crew can familiarize themselves with the equipment before A Day of Tournaments. As there is always a need for Ground Crew, we very much welcome non-riders to be of service and come train with us in prepapration for the Kingdom Championship.

There will be a Barding Petting Zoo for those interested in sewing ‘clothing’ for their horse!

The facility includes a polo-sized indoor riding arena as well as an outdoor arena. It has spacious stalls (I have to check if we can use those) and a large viewing floor with full view of the indoor arena. For those interested out side riding, the site also offers carriage-groomed trails through fields and woods.

Directions: Sheffield Farm, 451 Sheffield Road, Ithaca NY 14850

Autocrat: Mistress Cristina inghean Ghriogair (Donna Ankrum) 107 oak Hill Road, Ithaca NY, 14850. Phone: (607) 591-0999, email:
