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 will be the Regional Finals on July 5. Points accumulate over the three meets, and competition at all levels is very close. The Regional A level winners go on to play for the Eastern Canadian Championship against teams from the Western Ontario and Saint Lawrence-Ottawa Valley Regions. The two top Eastern Canadian A level teams then play against Western Canada representatives for the national championship, to be held near Vancouver. There is also a national Masters championship, to be hosted by Central Ontario this year. Both events are in August.
Now the details.
