Every Intermediate Rider can canter most of the games, may need to slow to the trot for some games skills, and can gallop some games. The Intermediate Rider is able to negotiate the various skills for mounted games with confidence and control at the prescribed speeds. The Intermediate Rider might be moving up from the Novice level and be developing the ability to vault on a moving pony as well as learning increased focus under pressure. The Intermediate Rider might be a previous Masters level rider who chooses to ease up due to a variety of circumstances, i.e. inability to dedicate the time/training to keep their pony and/or themselves conditioned for the demands of Masters level competition. Riders at the Intermediate level may be assisted by an experienced mounted games coach/trainer. The coach/trainer stays behind the 10 yard line, and insists upon proper horsemanship principles.
