First woman rider joins ‘Tournament of Kings’

Iranda Dyer brings more than 20 years of experience with horses to her new job—the first female horse rider for the Tournament of Kings show at Excalibur.

Even the Middle Ages, it seems, are getting with the times.

Tournament of Kings, the long-running King Arthur-themed dinner show at Excalibur, has added its first female horse rider to the cast—Iranda Dyer, who brings two decades of experience with horses to the production.

Dyer will take Nobilissimo, an Andalusian horse, through a performance of dressage, a routine in which the movements of the rider and horse are choreographed. She performs in the show on Friday, Sunday and Monday. When not performing, she works as a sports massage therapist for horses at various equine centers throughout the Valley.

Tournament of Kings Monday & Friday, 6 p.m.; Wednesday & Thursday, Saturday & Sunday, 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $59 at 597-7600 or on Excalibur’s website.
