IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Participants may join the Gymkhana team at NEA upon coach approval.


Our teams compete at two local Gymkhana clubs (Modjeska Mavericks and Norco Ranglers) that are part of the California Gymkhana Association (CGA) and host shows once a month (usually at the George Ingalls Arena in Norco). We also attend multi-day events put on by affiliate clubs (IE Vspurs in Temecula).



Additional Information:

Clothing and gear requirements: The CGA handbook requires all riders to wear jeans with western boots and a tucked in, button down shirt. Shirts can be sleeveless, short, or long-sleeved (long sleeves cannot be rolled up). All riders under 18 must wear a helmet and riders over 18 must wear a helmet or western hat. 


You are not required to have your own horse tack (you can use the school's) but it is highly encouraged. Part of the fun of Gymkhana is your horse's show tack! You must purchase a hay net, water bucket, bell boots, and splint boots for your horse by the beginning of the season.
