United States Mounted Games Association

Mission Statement

The United States Mounted Games Association was formed to inspire and encourage interest and to increase participation of Mounted Games in the United States. Our mission is to increase the number of riders involved, enhance the image of games as a spectator sport, and continually improving the quality and quantity of our competitions, while keeping safety and fairness a top priority. USMGA aims to provide a unique niche in equine sports by keeping games financially accessible to the general public.

In order to further this mission, USMGA will:

  • Protect its horses and riders by strictly enforcing established rules that will govern all USMGA-approved events, as to reflect the natural ability of horses and riders.
  • Provide educational opportunities to improve the skill level of riders.
  • Promote proper sportsmanship between riders and teams.
