The fastest time wins. Barrel racing is based solely on the clock. There are no points for 'style' – but it does matter how you ride.

The skill of the racer and horse are key factors. Trust and communication and a lot of practice are integral too. Good gear helps as well. A light weight saddle is generally used + good reins to manage the turns & speed.


Three barrels are placed in a triangle in the center of the ring. The racer can start on either side of the barrel, but must complete the correct cloverleaf pattern.

You’ll hear the go-ahead and see the horse & rider enter the ring at full speed. They turn tight and low around the barrels. Once they complete the pattern, they race to the start/finish line at the end of the ring.

You have a 60 second time limit to run the course.

NO TIME score is a disqualification for running past a barrel.

5 second time penalty happens when the horse and rider knock over a barrel. It’s costly because scores are within a fraction of a second between competitors.

That's all you need to know. If you’ve never seen it before, you’ll want to see it for sure. Barrel racing is fast and exhilarating. The crowd goes wild, the horses gallop and the riders get low for speed. It’s got it all.
