As if roller derby and American Valley Speedway isn't enough, the Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds now has Gymkhana! For those of you who don't know what it is, think relay races on horseback. It's a series of events that have rider and animal weave through poles, pick up and drop off flags, run patterns and try to do it all FAST! Great to watch, and it's free. There is a series going on throughout the summer, the next one is July 17 at the horse arena. Consider coming down to watch this great event. It doesn't matter if you don't know anything about horses, it's just fun to watch. Thanks to all the riders that participated, we hope to see more of you next month.
