Last september, my horse competed in her first gymkana and this year were going to try again, hopefully more speedier (to her, that means to attempt to trot a little faster :p ) the events are going to be keyhole, barrels, pole bending, ride a buck, maybe a egg and spoon race and maybe some pairs' races along with others. I was just wondering if I shoulkd buy Lily boots of some sort? And if so, what kind/type???

Oh and does anyone have any gymkana tips?

Im going to do gymkhana this year aswell and if you are going to be pushing your horse to do its hardest then you should get sports boots, the ones that go from the horses hocks to just below the knee so it wont be too hard on their legs but if you are just going to be trotting like you said then boots are not really important. My advice for you is to set up the gymkhana patterns around your house and practice practice practice! That's what I do and my horses is getting really good at it. Also remember to do other things too like trail rides or your horse will get tired of doing the same thing all the time. Goodluck! (:

Honestly, I wouldn't practice any of the patterns at home. You can set up different elements of them (two barrels to figure eight around and practice turns, etc.), but your main focus should be on working on tighter turns, changes of bend, stops, etc. Good luck!
