The Prince Philip Cup Games are a team competition played by Pony Clubs around the world. The Games are played by teams of five riders and five ponies, four of which participate in each game. All of the Games are variations on the relay race, and all are great fun for players and spectators alike. Many of the Games require the riders and ponies to run a slalom course around a series of poles from one end of the playing field to the other, where they hand-off something to the next rider on their team. In some races, riders have to vault off of and onto their ponies.

The next meet will be the Regional Finals on July 6. Points accumulate over the three meets, and competition at all levels is very close. After the first two meets, only one point separates the two A teams, and the largest gap between first and second in any division is 12 points. The Regional A and Masters winners go on to play for the Central Canada Zone Championship against teams from the Western Ontario and Saint Lawrence-Ottawa Valley Regions on July 24; Central Ontario Region is hosting this year's Central Canada Zone Championships on July 23. The two top Central Canada Zone A level teams then play against representatives of other Zones for the National A Championship at the Ontario's Pony Club Tournament of Champions August 15. There is also a National Masters Championship, which will be hosted by the Alberta North Zone August 23-24.
