Then see what all the fun is about at the next Gymkhana event. Webster defines Gymkhana as “competitive games on horseback”. Gymkhanas are open to both English and Western riders, children and even leadliners.
All speed events are timed and the fastest time wins. It helps if you have no faults such as knocking down a barrel or pole. Each obstacle knocked over is usually a 5 second penalty. You and your horse have to work as a team in a game designed for skill and precision. If you have ever wanted to learn to dance, now is your chance…but it will be with your horse as you compete against yourself for faster times.
Don’t worry if you are not up for speed just yet, competing in the walk/jog division may be your speed to start.
