Jouster Andre Renier Creates and Tests Replica of 16th Century Exploding Armour

Jouster and historical technician Andre Renier is featured in this excerpt from the show "Museum Secrets" that will be airing on History Television Canada. He and others are trying to recreate the "exploding armor" used in 16th century jousting tournaments to make the hits more dramatic.



Another excerpt from the show that focuses on how it feels to wear the armour:



"Words cannot express my gratitude for all of those who helped make this production of the Maximilian Exploding Armor possible.

On behalf of the WEC Institute and the crew of History TV's "Museum Secrets" I would like to thank the Knights of Iron, Excalibur Horse Center, Speedcult, Van Buren Steel, and so many more that put in so much time and effort to make this a reality.

A personal thank you to Dana Juretich, Samantha Matyas, Kellyn Burtka, J Edwards Monarch, and Kimber Spahr for each playing a vital role in making this vision a reality and keeping me safe." -- Andre Renier

Andre Renier is one of the owners of The Tilt and Tack Shoppe, an equestrian supply store which donates its profits to charitable organizations that research ways to improve equestrian sports safety.
