Thursday Evening Timed Events
Speed and time is what it is all about in this event. For the barrel racing event, the arena is cleared and three barrels are set up at different marked locations. The riders then enter the arena at full speed, quickly rounding each barrel in a cloverleaf pattern and then exiting where they entered.
The keyhole race is a timed event that requires speed, obedience and agility. The object is to run the pattern correctly as quickly as possible, without stepping outside of the keyhole shape marked on the ground.
Poles is a timed event. The object is to run the pattern correctly as quickly as possible, without knocking down any of the poles.
The object is to race to the end of the rodeo arena to where a goat is staked out on a 10 feet rope, catch the goat, throw it to the ground and tie three of its feet together.
