The Pony Club Mounted Games were started over 40 years ago by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and The Prince Phillip Cup, in collaboration with the Pony Club. The Mounted Games is a team competition requiring courage, determination and all-round riding ability on the part of the team members, as well as careful systematic training of their ponies.
The Senior Teams you see competing at Chatsworth are likely to be competing at their Area competitions, from which winners reach the final at the Horse of the Year where they compete for the Prince Phillip Cup.
