CONROI was a term used by 12th century Anglo-Norman writers to describe a battle formation, typically with reference to mounted Knights. In the 21st Century, the Conroi is a team of riders and re-enactors specialising in recreating ancient and medieval horsemen, whether Roman or Norman 'Equites', or mounted Saxon or Viking warriors. Since 2007 the Conroi have performed at Historic sites and castles all around the UK, and have formed the core of the Norman cavalry at the annual Battle of Hastings event for English Heritage. The Conroi have a solid reputation for their riding in recreations of battles, and also perform exciting ‘skill at arms’ displays, as well as dramatic tournament combats and ‘melees’.
