About Mounted Games

Mounted Games provides a team competition for all Branches and Centres encouraging determination and all-round riding ability, with careful and systematic training of their ponies.

If you like Gymkhana Games and want to have lots of fun then you and your pony will love Pony Club Mounted Games where you and your team will get to play lots of fun and imaginative games.

The objective is to ensure a higher standard of riding throughout Pony Club and to stimulate among the future generation a greater interest in riding as a sport and as a recreation.

For those of you who are new to this discipline, Mounted Games is divided into two groups, Juniors (not to have attended their 11th birthday on 01/01/17) and Seniors (not to have attained their 15th birthday on 01/01/17). We can send as many teams as we wish to competitions as long as we have at least 4 riders per team. All our more experienced riders all started somewhere, many of them on lead rein so please do come along what ever your ability, however if your child is struggling or still on the lead rein please will you provide a runner!
