Mounted games is an equestrian discipline where riders and their ponies compete in very fast relay races.
The riders require a high degree of athletic ability, good riding skills, hand-to-eye coordination, determination and a competitive spirit.
Unlike many equestrian disciplines an expensive prefixed pony is not required and most well schooled ponies (under 15hh) will quickly pick up the basics and become top class mounted games ponies. The ponies love racing and will watch the starters flag for the signal to start.
The Mounted Games Association of Great Britain was founded by Norman Patrick on 21st January 1984 with seven teams. As the Association continued to grow and develop, more and more county teams joined the Association. The Association's growth is not confined to Great Britain with 20 International Mounted Games Association member countries throughout the world.
