What is Mounted Games?
We usually describe the games as a series of relay and obstacle type races performed at high speed by very athletic riders and their ponies.
Members range from 4 to 50+. There is no upper or lower age limit for doing the games. Competitions for teams, pairs and individuals are arranged across Victoria at least once a month in five age groups. The age groups are U12, U15, U18, Open and Veterians
Any pony is suitable for doing the games on.
There are a variety of games ranging from pure speed races to accuracy races but all games have one thing in common - you make a mistake you must correct it before you can continue. This often involves getting off the pony. One of the main skills of mounted games is the speed at which you can get back onto the pony after getting off. This is known a vaulting and the ability to vault quickly onto the pony is vital in many of the games.
As in other sports, international mounted games competitions are held every year.
Victoria has many international riders that have competed all around the world
