Joust

Western European mock battle between two horsemen charging each other with levelled lances, each attempting to unhorse the other. Early medieval tournaments consisted of m�l�es, mock battles between two bodies of armed horsemen; later both the m�l�e and the joust took place at tournaments, and in the 15th century the joust tended to supersede the m�l�e.
