Anyone do mounted games?
 
I'm just wondering if any of you have competed in mounted games/gymkhanas before. I was watching youtube videos and it looks awesome! I think it would be fun to try it out with my horse someday. However, shes 15.3 and im 5'8 so i think shes too tall. Plus im 18 and i get the feeling its more for kids in pony club. But do any of you guys do it? And is there an age limit or horse height limit? it looks awesome and my friends and i just might mess around with it one day :)

Gymkhanas are very common here and people of all ages compete in them. There is no height limit and 15.3 HH is actually a really good height for mounted games. Mine is 15.1 and I wish she was a smidgen taller so she would have a longer stride.
