Gymkhanas?

Ok so I had never even heard this word until about a year ago, but anyway I'm just curious to know what kind of classes they have and such. My area doesn't have them, we have barrel shows but there mostly NBHA or IBRA and even the Open Shows, they all have the same classes; barrels, poles, and flags. Some bigger shows we'll have a Dash for Cash (like flags but without the flag), we really don't have much variation. But barrel racing is a big thing here. So when someone says speed race, cone weaving, ect. I'm kinda lost.

They are basically like:

Barrel Racing
Pole Bending
Flags
Keyhole
Speed and Control
Down and back

But they do have some weird, uncommon ones, that can be thrown in with those :)

My gymkhana does barrels, poles, stakes, flags (my arch enemy!) & keyhole (though that's only for the younger kids). I've heard that some gymkhanas will actually have some jumps, which I would love! But alas us Peers folk arent that cool...

Mine has Top Score, which is like jumping, but you can pick which order you wanna do. And the bigger ones have more points. And who ever has the most points wins. Key hole, Rider Class (Which is a bit like dressage.. But easier) Barrels, some thing where you jump over barrels on their side, go around a pole, then jump back, then go around another pole, about 5 times. So it looks like this-
O D o
O D o
O D o
O D o
And you weave though it.
And a few other sporting/game ones that I can't remember.
