The most thrilling part of the Renaissance Fair for me was watching the Cavallo Equestrian Arts perform their Ma'Ceo act.
-and horseback juggling (balls, pins, and great big curved blades. That was scary.)
Some of the moves looked truly dangerous! There were a few falls, and missed landings - limping gypsies - but many thrilling, gasp-worthy stunts were successfully performed to wild cheers and applause.
