The Rodeo: Ride Your Best Horse!

Barrel Racing.

  • Professional Barrel Racing is a woman’s event, though men and boys occasionally compete at a local level.
  • The aim is for a horse and rider to complete a clover-leaf pattern around a set of barrels in the fastest time.
  • They ride around 3 x 35 gallon barrels, laid out in a triangular pattern in the middle of the arena.
  • Times are measured by an electronic eye, or by a judge with a stopwatch.  The fastest rider wins outright.
  • This sport tests for speed, strength, agility, riding skill, and control. Yee haw!
