Where I live we have a saddle club that is presently just ropers. So we are going to split off from them, into our own "saddle club".

This is for the purpose of having fun shows, gymkhana's, etc.

In our area there is also a group that meets for "youth rodeo's". That group is a very competetive, "out for blood", type of group that is only for kids - ages 5-18. It is with our state's "high school rodeo association", so some of these kids are looking for scholarships to college and getting into professional rodeo.

We want to enlist local people that only want to have fun with their horses, and maybe, for some to get more practice. (but mostly fun)

So what I am looking for here is, help with games to play on horseback. What do you all do in your areas?? Besides the normal . When I was younger, we did barrels, poles,keyhole race, flags, trail class, leadback, corncob or egg race. So I have a few ideas, but really need more input.

Can you guys help me here???

No, sorry, no other ideas. Maybe if you google it.

How about some of the 'Jousting' type snagging the rings hanging from strings...snagging them on a pole, or the flags off of other riders tag football.
