Tent pegging is a race, usually a team race or relay, where a rider and horse aim to knock down a peg with a stick, or pick up a peg on a lance, as fast as possible.
The broader class of tentpegging games also includes:
- Ring jousting (in which a galloping rider tries to pass the point of his weapon through a suspended ring);
- Lemon sticking (in which the rider tries to stab or slice a lemon suspended from a cord or sitting on a platform);
- Mounted archery
- Even jousting!
