Harvest Fair Jackpot Gymkhana

Sixteen competitors took part in the Williams Lake Harvest Fair Annual Jackpot Gymkhana during the weekend at the Outdoor Trail Riders Arena.

Participants, ranging in age from two years old to 60-plus, all enjoyed a great day of equine fun competing in five events: barrel racing, speed barrels, poles, stakes and keyhole for cash payout of all entry fees totalling $400 and another added $500 to third place in each event.

Organizer Debbie Fadenrecht noted Pat Coster was named sportswoman of the day for her selfless act of loaning her horse to one of the competitors when her horse was injured part way through the day.

“A huge thanks to all the volunteers who helped make the day a success,” Fadenrecht said. “A great day was had by all involved.”
