Bill Burch
(Musical Director / Artistic Co-Director / Co-Producer

Bill started riding horses before he could walk and continued to do so without a break until the present day. He caught the acting bug in high school and then attended college in Minnesota where he majored in theatre. Afterwards, he started to intern with several very skilled armorers and soon built his own suit of full plate armor. He  was then privileged enough to be part of Heroes and Villians jousting company, one of the best full armored joust troupes in the USA, where he was trained under director/producer/actor Matthew Mansour for 6 years. Bill then went on to produce/direct/act in his own troupe in 1998. Since then Bill has worked for  several joust companies across the country as well as in Canada. He has also trained his own team of chariot horses, built his own chariot and has also trained his matching pet Dobermans to pull a small chariot where they have performed here in the USA and abroad.

With his various experiences, Bill has come to the philisophical conclusion that to be successful in any aspect of horsemanship one must have true unity with the horse.
