The Masters rider and pony combination are at the highest level of mounted games riding, and the Masters Rider generally has excellent vaulting skills. The Masters skill level is such that a rider can negotiate all aspects of mounted games playing at a fast pace safely and under complete control at all times. Masters level riders must be confident performing most, if not all, of the games at the gallop. The Masters Rider shows maturity through their ability to remain focused under pressure, exhibit awareness and attention to the surrounding field, and react instinctively and safely throughout the competition. Riders at the Masters 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.
