PONY CLUB Mounted Games

Mounted Games is a team competition that requires courage, determination and all round riding ability from team members in combination with the careful and systematic training of their ponies. Teams consist of five members participating in a variety of games where speed and breath-taking accuracy are the norm.
Competitions are held during the summer at various locations and shows throughout the country at Under 10, Junior and Senior level culminating in the Under 10 and Junior Championships at the Pony Club Festival in July and the Senior Competition at the RDS Dublin during the International Horse Show. The games are exciting and fun to watch and are one of the top attractions at the Dublin Horse Show in the RDS

Congratulations to all of the Irish Pony Club members who participated in the trials for the International Mounted Games teams for 2020.  

Thirty three riders took part in the trials at the end of January in Punchestown.  The good news is that all these riders will travel abroad this season to represent their country in the discipline that they love.  Over the two days of trial action, the heats were exhilarating and showcased the amazing talent from riders across the country.  Selectors as a result, had  difficult decisions to make when finalising their teams.  The following are the teams, trainers and destinations for our 2020 Mounted Games teams.  Well done to everyone involved, riders, parents and Branches.
