From their website:
Mounted Games is a branch of equestrian sport, which, at its highest level, displays a variety of very fast relay races performed by excellent riders on well- trained ponies. This is exciting for participants and spectators alike. It is geared to riders of all ages and skill levels, from the very youngest (or oldest!) beginner to the very experienced.
Mounted Games riders develop a high degree of athletic ability, instinctive riding skills, and hand-to-eye coordination. They possess a general determination to see things through to the end no matter what, and a competitive spirit which nevertheless requires an ability to work together with other riders and a willingness to help one another. At the top level, Mounted Games is a prime example of the ultimate extreme equestrian sport.
