About the Barrel Race

Barrel Racing contestants compete against the clock to run a cloverleaf pattern around three barrels. The horse and rider are allowed a running start and time is recorded by a highly accurate electronic eye. The contestant may begin on the left or the right side; however, the contestant is disqualified if he/she turns incorrectly around a barrel. Touching a barrel is permitted, however knocking over a barrel results in a five second penalty.

A good Barrel Racing horse must possess not only speed and agility, but also a good temperament and a big heart. American Quarter Horses are often favored for this event because of their ability to sprint short distances and turn on a dime. American Paint Horses, Appaloosas, and Pintos are also popular mounts. The majority of contestants in barrel racing are women, but quite a few male competitors have also made their mark in the world of barrel racing.
