The Game Horse Association of New Jersey was
established in 1976 by a few friends who wanted
to enjoy their horses and promote
horsemanship, competition & fun. We run
gymkhana events (or games), using an electric
timer for fairness to all riders. In the beginning
there were only a handful of riders holding
shows in their backyards. Today, although still
in a backyard, there are 3 divisions and an
average of 65-70 riders per week and some of
our Seniors started with us as lead-lined ponies!
We still hold those early values dear, especially
the FUN. We also promote family, comradery,
sportsmanship & teamwork. Spectating is
FREE and we provide a concession stand &
private bathroom for your convenience.
We begin our season on the 1st Sunday in April,
switch to Saturday nights the week after
Father's Day weekend, then back to Sundays
about the 2nd week of September. The Sunday
shows begin at 10:00 am sharp and the Saturday
night shows at 5:30 pm sharp. We end our season the
2nd Sunday in October.
