LCHA GYMKHANA DIVISION
We are excited to again enjoy our members at up coming events. We will be following all COVID guidelines for our events. It may mean that we ask you for specific actions. Please do not take any of these negatively. We want everyone to have an amazing year.
Remember 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.
