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.
