Mounted Games!

Hi all!

I'm just curious to see if anybody else on here does Mounted games.

I do a LOT of it and I absolutely love it.

Let me know if you have done it or you want to know more about it :]

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!!!

I compete at state each year, also in our MGA ( independent ) and I have been first reserve for nationals. trying out again this year.

we have hundreds of games here, we just pick which ones we do at comps.

Sorry Paintlover!
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 :]

That sounds like a lot of fun. We have done some similar kinds of games at some of our shows, but they were not part of any official mounted game type thing - still fun though. :)
