THE USE OF TITLES

In keeping with the traditions of their medieval predecessors, today's Knights and Maids are always referred to by their "titles", such as "The Knight of Ivanhoe" or "The Maid of Greystone." All titles are self-appointed and may be taken from a limitless variety of sources: the rider's farm name, historical events, horse's name or even humorous subjects such as "Knight Of I Will If I Can." Incidentally, that title was first used in 1872, and four generations later it is still in use.
