What is Gymkhana?

Gymkhana is timed obstacle racing on horseback. It is one of the most exciting family oriented equestrian sports in the world. It is a fast growing sport that anyone can enjoy.

The California Gymkhana Association offers riders an opportunity to participate in shows throughout California. Riders may earn a variety of awards while participating in the 13 events. Some events favor speed, and some events favor skill. Awards may be earned at all skill levels, from Future Champion to Hall of Fame!
