Quebec Knight rides across Canada

Quebec knight riding across Canada for valour - Ottawa - CBC News

A Quebec man is travelling across Canada dressed as a knight and riding on a horse in a quest to show "true valour" still exists.
Vincent Gabriel Kirouac of Quebec City, Que., says he has been on an eight-year quest to ride across the country. He started his journey with his horse Lionheart in Quebec City earlier this year. Kirouac is heading west to his final destination in British Columbia. On Wednesday, he arrived in Ottawa.
It all began in high school, he said, when his teacher was helping him find a job. He decided he wanted to become a knight.
Now he is staying at farms across Canada each night and riding his horse each day. Click on the video link above to hear about Kirouac's journey.

Not to knock, but I think "True Valour" runs somewhere in the line of running into a burning building to rescue a trapped family. It means courage or bravery in battle.

This is kinda cool...glad he chose Canada for his trip because he would melt under that metal hat anywhere in the USA right now! I hope his horse holds up. I know of a couple stories where a horse and rider go to cross the US, but the horse ends up lame about 2000 miles into the trip so they have to call it quits.

He says in the video he stops at farms every night. I just hope he's keeping up with farrier work. That much ware on the hooves...

Thats a whole lot of miles for a horse to travel cross country. He can keep up with farrier work but when it gets down to it, its like asking you to walk for miles every day, on uneven terrain, and resting only at night. Your feet, legs and hips are going to suffer from the constant concussion. Most horses, even competitors, don't do that much work. I'd be interested in knowing if they end up making it.
