The winner is determined by who can run the barrel-racing pattern in the fastest time. The rider’s horsemanship skills, the horse’s mental condition, and the horse’s athleticism are all very crucial to providing a good time. Three barrels are placed in a triangular pattern, the rider must ride around each one, and whoever has the lowest time, wins.Find out a little more about the nuances of what makes a top barrel racing run, before being amazed at the sheer speed as the competition really comes into flight.
