Gymkhana

We hold two gymkhanas during the year - spring and autumn.  They give our students the opportunity to showcase their developing riding and horse-handling skills.


All Whitethorn Academy students (past and present) are eligible to participate. Classes may include Led Handler, Rider, Pair of Riders, Jumping Equitation and Challenge Course.


Our gymkhanas are great days out for the whole family. Bring Grandma and Pop, all the cousins, uncles and aunts and make a day of it. The canteen on the day sells morning and afternoon teas, barbecue lunch, snacks and drinks throughout the day.


As a treat for spectators, our gymkhanas feature a special display at the end of competition.


After the special display and the horses are put away, we will stage an Awards Presentation, so look forward to all spectators staying to share in the celebrations of some wonderful achievements by our students.


You might like to bring appropriate bevvies and some nibblies to share after the Presentation.
