The Prince Philip Cup Games are a team competition played by Pony Clubs around the world. 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 in the regular season will the Regional Finals on July 2. Points accumulate over the three meets, and competition at all levels is very close. 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 19, with Central Ontario Region hosting the meet this year. The two top Eastern Canadian A level teams then play against Western Canadian representatives for the national championship on August 26-27, hosted by Central Ontario. There is also a National Masters Championship on August 12, hosted by the British Columbia Lower Mainland Region.
