quintin

Part of speech: Noun

In former times, a post to be tilted at in military exercises, sometimes taking the form of a man turning on a pivot; for mounted soldiers, the upright post was surmounted by a transverse bar, having a flat board at one end, and the other loaded and balanced by a heavy bag of sand, which knocked the rider off his horse as it turned on its pivot, if he struck the flat- board end unskilfully.
