SLIDESHOW: Williams Lake Harvest Fair 2012 Gymkhana

The Williams Lake Harvest Fair's 2012 Gymkhana drew 58 competitors from around the region.

This year the gymkhana events were organized a little differently.

Organizers LeeAnn Crosina and Nikki Fuller have been running gymkhanas at the Trail Rider’s Arena during the summer months in a 2D format.

Each group completed in an event and then the qualifying teams were split in half.

Any ‘no times’ did not count in the half split.

The top half of the competitors then received a payout (1D) and then the second half received a payout (2D).

Depending on how many riders there were the payout was to two placings or three placings as listed.

This provided more riders with a cash payout and even if you weren’t the fastest you still could win something. There were 58 competitors at this year’s fair.

Thank you to the Williams Lake Harvest Fair for the $500 in added prize money, to Save-On Foods for donating the flour for the Keyhole Race, and to all the volunteers who helped with the announcing, watering and harrowing the arena, moving of props, and doing the gate. We couldn’t do it without you.

Results from the Williams Lake Harvest Fair gymkhana over the weekend are as follows. Winners’ names appear in first, second and third position.

There were 11 riders in the age 6-and-under category; nine riders in the age 7-to-11 category, 14 riders in the age 12-to-16 category, 15 riders in the age 17-to-39 category, and nine riders in the age 40-plus category.
