Ring Riding is a form of jousting ( in joust (medieval sport) )

...and the joust took place at tournaments, and in the 15th century the joust tended to supersede the mêlée. Jousting fell from favour by the beginning of the 16th century. Tilting, or riding, at the rings is a form of jousting in which the horseman rides at full gallop and inserts his lance through small metal rings.
