Horse and Rider



Game Description

Put the Scouts into pairs and position them equally in a circle, with the pairs standing heel to toes facing the centre of the circle.

The Scout at the front is the horse and the other Scout the rider.

On a whistle blow the horse opens his legs and the rider goes through his leg, clockwise around to the back of the horse, around the outside of the circle and jumps on the horses back. The last rider is out. When a rider is out, they sit away from the game and the horse sits down.

On the next whistle the remaining horse and riders dismount and swap positions.

The last pair in are the winners.
