Awards for the year were also presented on Saturday, said competitor and organizer Tammy Hronek.

The Stettler Gymkhana Club previously held events in July and August, awarding points to contestants at each instance..

Points were tallied from the three events to determine the high scorers in each age category.

Thanks to the support of the club’s sponsors, Hronek said, organizers were able to purchase prizes for each competitor under the age of 18.

The competitors included children as young as four. Each gymkhana attracted at least 40 riders, while the final event of the season featured a total of 53 entries.

“We are so excited to do this all again next summer,” said Hronek.

Awards were presented in four age categories as follows:

Peewee, six years and under: Kayla Hronek, first; Kally Willis, second; Rhett Henderson, third.

Youth, seven to 10 years: Lexa Bergstrom, first; Shaelee Schwartz, second; Cooper Henderson, third.
