Event Description: 

This time, USMGA will still have the mounted games Winter Wonderland competition on Saturday and Sunday mornings, but USMGA is also opening up the Sunday afternoon time frame to 4-H participants to give them an opportunity to get exposure to the sport.

At 1 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29 4-H riders are invited to test their skills in the Altech Arena in a series of races. All breeds, sizes and disciplines of horses are encouraged to try mounted games. Riders will pick up rings with swords, put cartons in buckets (at whatever speed they like) put flags in cones and do other skills while competing in a team relay. Success in races is dependent on the riders communication skills and their horses willingness rather than on raw speed.

The session, sponsored by the United States Mounted Game Association, will have coaches for each team and will include a sampling of the 26 races used in competitions in the U.S. and countries around the world. 

Riders need to sign a release to participate and pay a $ 5 temporary membership fee to meet USMGA insurance regulations. Hardhats are required. The Altech arena is heated and an amazing place to ride. For more information contact Liz Englert, 502-439-4783. To reserve a slot call Pat Neuhauser at 502-551-5374 

Background
- A Description of the Sport 
Mounted games are an unusual equestrian sport. They are the most exciting and extreme of the equestrian world. With music pounding and spectators cheering, riders sporting their countries’ colors compete in teams of four in relay races. In these races the riders have to use a variety of skills to win a race: 
-Leaping on and off of a galloping horse
-Spearing objects at a gallop
-Leaning off a galloping horse to grab an object off the ground -Jousting at targets

The competition is fierce. Riders spend years perfecting these skills in the hopes of representing their country and possibly being crowned World Champion.

For over 25 years the United States Mounted Games Association has provided opportunities for riders of all ages to enjoy games on horseback and to compete internationally as well as in the United States.

The United States Mounted Games Association was formed to inspire, encourage interest, and increase participation in Mounted Games in the United States. Our mission is to increase the number of riders involved in Mounted Games, improve the quality and number of our United States competitions, and to enhance the image of equestrian games as a spectator sport. USMGA aims to provide niche in equine sports by making Mounted Games, a relatively inexpensive horse sport, available to the general public for the advancement and understanding of the equine industry.
