IT'S like a scene from the medieval days, more than 500 years ago - people dressed in full metal armour, riding a horse and jousting an opponent.
And, it's coming to the Cloncurry Show.
The sport is called full metal jousting - taking the most dangerous collision sport in history and transforming it into a 21st-century event.
Of course, some alterations have been made to match progression of equipment and safety gear.
But it's as intense as it ever was and is now captured by Foxtel's A&E channel, a new factual entertainment channel targeting a new younger skewing male audience.
Traditional armour is replaced by modern suits of steeland the action is captured by high-speed cameras.
Each episode features full-contact jousts in which jousters charge and collide at 50 kilometres per hour and every joust is a test of courage, and strength requiring nerves of steel.
The last man standing takes home the cash.
Rod Walker, from Bathurst in New South Wales, will be showcasing the sport at the Cloncurry Show and said he expected the crowd to be enthralled.
"It's a big horse area out here so I expect them to really get into it," he said.
"We try to get it as close as possible to how they did it back in the old days.
"We combine horsemanship with wearing about 35-40 kilograms of real steel armour."
Mr Walker, 41, has been involved in the sport since he was 20 years old to fuel his passion for history.
He has been a driving force in jousting since the early 1990s and the founding member of the International Jousting Association.
With a resume showing he has competed all over the world, the Cloncurry Show is set for a performance full of entertainment.
"The crowd can expect fast horses, suits of armour and lots of broken sticks," he said.
"Come and see the timber fly!"
Mr Walker is the only jouster in the world that has competed in all of the jousting styles in practice.
Widely regarded as one of the best tacticians in the game, he is one of the few top, modern jousters that have jousted in a full authentic style, using real lances with steel coronels.
He has travelled up with a float containing three horses - a thoroughbred, a stock horse and quarter horse.
Sarah Hay from Sydney will also be on the other side of the ring for the jousting performance.
