You can find out if your local group has equestrian events (some areas don't, but that doesn't mean you couldn't start one!).

Once you show an interest in participating you will have people at your beck and call working to get your persona (who you are going to be) developed and how to get involved with the group.
Cool! Thanks for answering me!

I have a close friend who was involved with the PA SCA for years! She was actually apprenticing to be a Knight until her health problems (which always looks funny 'cuz she's a wee little lady!). Then she switched to Seamstress. Anyways, she was going to let me tag along, but then she stop going for personal reasons. Now she lives in Georgia.

I tried talking w/someone involved in the local equestrian SCA. They weren't friendly or really willing to talk w/me.

My other qualm is I think the SCA given timeline for personas isn't as early as I would like for a persona. I think.

Thanks Chuck!

As far as personas they can be as early as you want them to be. We have several Scythians and earlier.

Until a person proves that they are really interested in the SCA, they aren't going to invest much time in them. I know that seems backwards. The same happened to me when I wanted to start swordfighting. And it's because they will invest a lot of time and energy into a person who says they are interested and then the person just up and flakes out. So, they'd rather have people come and observe and help out at practices (equestrian and swordfighting) and really show genuine interest and dedication.

Then, they'll literally put themselves out just to make sure you get everything you need to live 'The Dream'. They take it very seriously. They are very passionate about it.
