ROCK SPRINGS -- Wild West Outlaws are hosting two Gymkhanas for children and adults of all ages Sept. 19, 2021, and Oct. 23, 2021, starting at 9 a.m.
Additional fall and winter dates will be announced later.
Riding events include barrel racing, pole bending, and a fun event like Keyhole. Competitors are grouped by aged division and span all the way from lead line with toddlers to adults.
Admission to watch is free.
Wild West Outlaws are a group of horse riders passionate about making gymkhana events accessible to everyone. They work to keep prices low for competitors with each event only costing $10 if the competitor is a WWO member, $15 if they are not a member.
The group started out as a way for kids to have fun during long Wyoming winters but has expanded to include adults. In addition to local kids and adults, people travel to compete from Rawlins, Evanston, Big Piney and many other small communities.
“This is an event for the kids, but it benefits lots of people,” said organizer Susan Nichols. "This is a great way for kids and adults alike to compete in fun horse events during the fall and winter month."
