Barrel racing is a speed event in which a horse and rider attempt to complete a clover leaf pattern around preset barrels in the fastest time. It combines the horse’s athletic ability and the horsemanship skills of a rider in order to safely and successfully maneuver a horse though the pattern. Barrel racing patterns call for a precise distance between the start line and the first barrel, from the first to the second barrel and from the second to the third barrel.

The only judge is the clock, in Barrel Racing and the winners are determined by a thousandth of a second, there is no room for error. The purpose is to make a run as fast as possible. The race is broken into divisions. Races that involve divisions are commonly known as 3D, 4D, 5D or 6 D races, meaning there will be 3 Divisions, 4 Divisions, 5 Divisions or 6 Division. In these races, the fastest time will set the 1D and the break down of the other divisions is as follows: 

·       1D Fastest Time 

·       2D Fastest Time plus .5 second 

·       3D Fastest Time plus 1 second

·       4D Fastest Time plus 1.5 seconds 

·       5D Fastest Time plus 2 seconds

·       6D Fastest Time plus 2.5 seconds 

·       The number of placing in each division will vary.
