Gymkhana is a mounted competition that requires precise, controlled horsemanship at high speeds in timed, patterned races through barrels, poles or other markers. Races are designed to test a horse and rider’s skill, control, and partnership through variations of speed, turning and navigating obstacles. The goal in Gymkhana is to safely complete the race according to the pattern, with the fastest time without any errors.

Gymkhana in Pony Club offers members on teams of three or four riders and a stable manager the opportunity to work as a team to excel in showing off their horsemanship skills in addition to their riding scores. While a recent addition to Pony Club, Gymkhana (also known as speed events) has a long history in the United States.
