Barrel racing is a rodeo event that is known for quick turns, high speeds, and edge-of-your-seat excitement. Like other timed events, the winner of the barrel race is determined by thousandths of a second! The barrels are placed in a triangle shape with the base closest to the alleyway. Barrel racers enter the arena at a full run, speeding towards the first barrel, choosing to go either right or left. After making a tight and complete circle around the first barrel, the rider must then race on to the second and third barrel to complete the cloverleaf pattern. Finally, the rider and horse bolt towards the finish line in hopes of stopping the clock with the fastest time! This event is free to spectators.
