What are the Mounted Games Championships?
The Mounted Games Championships form part of The Pony Club Championships and feature some of the most exciting action of any Pony Club sport! Teams battle it out across multiple days in Junior, Intermediate, Senior and Pairs classes - and with the final two qualifying spots for the Prince Philip Cup on the line for the seniors, there's a lot at stake!
How do I qualify?
The Mounted Games Championships is open to teams from Pony Club Branches and Centres in the UK. Teams will need to get through two qualifying rounds - firstly at their Area Competition, and then at the regional Zone Competitions.
Many clubs are already active in Mounted Games - have a chat with them and see if you can get involved!
