Mounted Games is an exciting equestrian sport which has been growing in leaps and bounds over the past 10 years in South Africa. We have hosted 3 small internationals locally and a World Team Championships right here at the Pietermaritzburg Royal Agricultural Showgrounds in 2017. This extreme sport requires riders to be agile, brave and focused while also demanding a trusting relationship with their special horse/pony. Riders can compete as individuals, pairs or teams starting at club level, just learning to ride, to representing South Africa at the World Championships with a Protea proudly on your shirt.
The KZN team recently travelled to Stellenbosch to take on Gauteng and Western Cape in the provincial championships. The Junior section was won by Western Cape and the Open section was taken by KZN. Our next big events will be the World Team Championships in Wales and the Nations Team Championships in New Zealand in 2019.
Riders from all over the country are encouraged to get involved and try out this exciting sport. If you would like to see what its all about, get to the Royal Show where some of our riders will be putting on an exhilarating demonstration. South Africa’s reigning individual and pairs champion, Tomas Forsythe will be showing off his skills alongside a few of our other top riders and some excited beginners.
