Joust/Tourney (Don't know the English word for this)

Hi,

(I'm from Germany, sorry for my (bad?) English)
I want to know if there are any "classes" at a Joust/Tourney.
In Germany there are:

E - Einfach/Einsteiger = "easy"
A - Anfänger = "Newcomer"
L - Leicht = "facile"
M - Mittel = "medium/middle"
S - Schwer = "difficult"

This is my translation (I don't know if this translation is correct/right).
Do you know what I mean? Is there anything in the same way in Britain/America? [/quote]

Do you mean a Joust Tournament...like this?


I haven't heard of this being a competitive sport here in the US, but I know people do it in Renaissance Fairs and such.

No, I didn't meant sth like that.

I thought of a "normal" joust/(riding)competition. For Dressage oder Jumping. Do you have there any grades like I've written in my first post?

@moomoo: Thank you. (This was what I've meant.)

Are the same grades also in Dressage?

I think in dressage it goes:
Pre-novice
Novice
Elementary? - (schwer)

I am not certain as I do not participate in dressage

@moomoo: Why do you know that this called "schwer" in German?
Maybe the translation of Elementary is right, but I'm not sure if this is so.
