On your first pass or if you haven't dealt any damage yet:
As you pass through a small crowd near a rope barrier, they hush for a moment, then begin chanting "The Undersecretary of Nottingham! The Undersecretary of Nottingham!"

The Undersecretary of Nottingham comes around for another pass, charging you while barely holding on to his own steed.
Your opponent attacks ...
- He reads off a list of rules and regulations for hunting in the king's wood.
- While his boss spent too much time in the sewers, the Undersecretary practiced stabbing people. See? (psychic) damage

He hits you for X damage.

If you fail to unhorse him:
Apparently tired of running back and forth, the knight's mount carries him off into the distance. Well, we'll call that one a victory, at least until he can get turned around for another run at the lists.
If you succeed in unhorsing him:
The knight slips from his horse and falls to the ground. The crowd rushes in, chanting your name as he's carried off to the first aid tent... they have a first aid tent?
Amid the festivities, you notice a pair of gloves in the mud. Huh. He seems to have gotten it backwards. It's supposed to be throw down your gauntlet then have a joust.
On the bright side, they fit perfectly.
50% resistant to physical damage.
50% weak to psychic damage.
