Barrel Racing

An exciting race against the clock in which exhibitors follow a course consisting of three barrels in a triangular “cloverleaf” pattern. Riders choose to circle either the right or left barrel first, race to the opposite barrel and complete the course after circling the third barrel and racing down the center of the three barrels to stop the timer. Knocking over a barrel carries a five-second penalty. Barrel racing is popular with all ages and all skill levels. It is an excellent entry event for newcomers to competition.
