What is barrel racing?
Barrel racing tests the speed and agility of a horse and rider in a cloverleaf pattern around three identical barrels:
- The clock is started electronically as the horse crosses the starting line at full speed.
- The rider may chose to maneuver around the cloverleaf toward the right or the left.
- The clock stops when the pattern is complete and the horse crosses the finish line.
A five-second penalty is given for touching a barrel, even if it is being done to keep from falling. A contestant is disqualified for crossing the finish line without completing the standard cloverleaf pattern. (Excerpt by Brenda Ruggiero).
