Cost of Mounted Reenacting
This document is a general overview of the cost in reenacting both mainstream and authentic styles. As we mention on the "Join Us" page, if you are interested in joining a unit please contact that unit before you purchase any equipment. Since this hobby is expensive, you do not need to buy un-needed items or in-authentic items. We would be happy to assist you in purchasing any item you are interested in. Before you buy any period clothing or equipment, we ask that you ride with us at a few events with some borrowed gear to see what you really need.
