Gymkhana Winter Bling Series 2020


NEW DATES Due to Shelter in Place 


Saturday, April 11th - 2 gymkhanas held same day

Sunday, April 19th - 2 gymkhanas held same day


Please read important info below:


The “Bling Series” is a series of pre-season Gymkhana shows that allow riders and horses to get “tuned up” for the regular show season. They also allow any new riders to get rated into time “divisions” before the normal season starts.


Due to the “Shelter in Place” we had to reschedule the Bling Series Shows. Bling Shows are typically done before we start our first Point Show of the season. With the current “Shelter In Place” end date of April 7th, we only have a couple of weekends before our first point show starts “Stampede” April 25th. This is how we will attempt to have the Bling Series shows.


April 11th (Saturday) – We will hold 2 shows on this date, we will run Show 1 first, have a small break and then go into our second show. We will run rated events and if time permits and the attendance is small, we may add extra events that are not rated – so we can get some practice in and enjoy being outside. We will play the extra events by ear!


April 19th (Sunday) – We will hold 2 shows on this date, we will run Show 1 first, have a small break and then go into our second show. We will run rated events and if time permits and the attendance is small, we may add extra events that are not rated – so we can get some practice in and enjoy being outside. We will play the extra events by ear!


The Bling Series dates are dependent on whether the “Shelter in Place” is extended or rain occurs on show dates - Please watch the Facebook “CSHA Region 5 Gymkhana” updates.
