My name is Aaron, I am 15 years old and have been selected in the Australian Pony Club Mounted Games team for 2019. The team of 5 riders will head to Colorado in America at the end of July to compete in the Prince Phillip Mounted games Championships.
Mounted games is a fast paced action sport on horseback that requires a very high fitness level as riders jump on and off their horses at unbelievable speeds whilst picking up objects and completing tasks required, riders also need to be agile as there is a lot of bending, leaning as well as skill involved in completing tasks at high speed. I would class mounted games as an extreme sport.
I have been a dedicated pony club member of the Londonderry pony club in NSW since the age of 3 competing in all horses sports not just mounted games, I feel I am a great horseman.
A few of my achievements through Pony club include Club champion in mounted games and I have been part of the team that have taken out champion at Zone, State and National level in the last 2 years.
I am in need of your support to help raise funds to cover the cost of uniforms, travel, airfare and training cost involved in getting me to America for the championships.
This is an amazing opportunity to represent my country in a sport that I am passionate about, any donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
