Oxford Pony Club



PRINCE PHILIP GAMES - PPG

Often described as FUN relays on horseback, the riders usually use smaller ponies, sometimes borrowed, to compete in a series of mounted relay races. Such games as Five Flags, Postman, Wizard's Castle, Stepping Stones, Sword Race, etc. test overall coordination of mount and rider as well as between the four team members. It is a colourful, exciting and fun-filled event. Teams wear their branch colours (Oxford Pony Club colours are teal blue and brown).

There are games for all rider skill levels from lead line to masters and often there are scramble teams made up of members of two or more branches. With the focus on the game, young players soon learn to ride naturally and comfortable as they strive to be the first team to complete the relay.
