Gymkhana is a very popular speed event in the Western horse world. It’s rodeo-style involving speed, precision and time. It can be competitive but can also just be a time to have fun with friends and horses!

Barrel racing and pole-bending are two of the most popular gymkhana games, but there are other patterns and games that can be done such as key-hole or running a flag from one place to another.

You don’t have to have a fancy horse or equipment to participate in gymkhana. All you need is a well-trained horse that responds to your cues and knows how to make sharp turns.
