Welcome to the official site of

Idaho Mounted Orienteering
The Thinking Sport


Mounted Orienteering is a competitive, timed sport.  The object of the sport is to use a map, compass and clues to find five hidden markers while riding a trusty steed.  Competitors may ride individually or as a team of two or more.  The person or team who finds all five markers in the least amount of time places first.  Extra points are given to the first six competitors or teams finding all five markers in the least amount of time.  At most rides there is a non-competitive short course.  This course covers less distance than the regular course and landmarks and markers are easier to identify and locate.  Everyone gets two points for each marker they find.
