Barrel Racing

Barrel racing is a competitive event in which a horse and rider run a cloverleaf pattern around three barrels. It is a timed event in which the fastest time wins. Though most recognized as a sport more commonly competed in by women than men, depending on what (if any) governing body sanctions a barrel race the rider may be either male or female.

In barrel racing, the rider has the choice of turning either the right or left barrel first. It is most common to take the right barrel first because most horses are naturally more athletic when working to their left. By taking the right barrel first the horse will have one right-hand turn (the first barrel), and two left-hand turns (the second and third barrels).

Below: This illustration shows shows the barrel racing pattern with the right barrel being turned first.

Penalties

Penalties can be incurred during a barrel racing run. One of the most common penalties is incurred when a rider knocks over a barrel. Depending on the set of rules used, knocking over a barrel commonly adds 5 seconds to the run's time, or the run is given a no time.

Another common penalty is incurred if the barrel racer "breaks the pattern" (which means they don't run around all three barrels in the manner described by the rules), or if they cross back across the start/finish line before the pattern is complete. If a barrel racer breaks the pattern, they typically receive a no time.
