I wish we had games around here...... all we have is the 4-H show at the fair every year..... at camp I've done some mounted games and when I was in riding lessons, but they were simplier....... at camp because the horses lack ability and then at lessons because I was only 7.... not a whole lot you can do at 7 when riding a horse that is 16 + hh.....
We have mounted games at local shows but not as many different types as brittx6x6 showed! We have bending, keyhole,bonfield bounce, barrels(smaller course then the rodeo size) and flags. I love it! :) especially the barrels!!!
Forgot to explain...
To put it simply its games on horseback.
But its actually very complicated!
Its short races, and each race will incorporate different skills,
I.e. Putting a ball on/taking it off a cone, vaulting on or off, bending through poles, picking up flags, etc.
This is all done VERY fast at the higher levels.
Mostly it is played in teams of five, with four riding in each race,
But you can also run individuals and pairs.
You need a fast, agile pony who isn't spooky and who won't get too hyped up!
I love it :]
