2011 Need for Speed Team

Need for Speed is a show team that loves Gymkhana.  Gymkhana is western games like pole pending, barrel racing, etc. 

Any horse and rider can participate - speed is not as important as a good partnership between horse and rider.

Tontine was our first horse, and he learned to love Gymkhana when our son Dylan was only 8.  When Dylan "outgrew" Tontine he taught many other kids to love this horse discipline.  Here he is pictured several years ago with Alison and April Ott.

Will is our most experienced Gymkhana horse.  He has been winning state championships for thirteen years.  Here he's pictured at an early  competition with Dylan Avery.
