LCHA GYMKHANA DIVISION
We thank you for another great year in 2019. They are a couple of items we need to make sure all members know.
In each age group there must be three qualified riders before a saddle can be awarded. A runner up saddle will be awarded if there are 6 or more qualified riders.
Every age group will be competing in 5 events for year-end awards.
The events will be:
**Goat Tying – The 6 & under competitors will be tying a goat string around the goat’s neck, while an adult holds the goat. Goat string must not be twisted nylon.
**Fun Event – This event will change at each gymkhana and be decided by the draw of the event from a bucket. The possible events can be found on the LCHA website under the gymkhana tab. There will be a printable document with rules and information.
**Steer Daubing as it’s own event.
