Hi there,
Random question, does anyone know the origin of the word numnah? I know it comes from a north american word, but what is the meaning?

Er, now I'm not sure.. I've read a few contradicting things. Forget it xD

Okay. No. I WAS right, and the term originated in India. As did the term Gymkhana. Anyways, yeah, from India, the Urdu language, specifically.

I've read a Dressage book before and the word "numnah" is a saddle pad! It's used in England I am pretty sure...
