Mounted games

Mounted games is a fast-paced team competition that showcases the rider's athletic ability, agility, precision of riding and general horsemanship. Riders must navigate their way through a number of obstacle races, which can include bending poles, stepping stones and a stacking race. All courses rely on the skill, control and agility of the rider to complete without penalties, and finish quicker than the other competing teams, pairs or individuals. Teams consist of between four and five riders and their ponies.

Under the Mounted Games Association of Great Britain, there are four age classification groups for teams...

  • under-12
  • under-14
  • under-17
  • open (all ages can compete) 

Many riders start out with mounted games through the Pony Club, although the sport is governed by the Mounted Games Association of Great Britain (MGAGB).
