As a mother of a teen who barrel races, I am surprised at some of the inquisitive reactions when I mention her sport. Some aren’t familiar with the rodeo-themed sport, so here’s a short summary for those unsure what barrel racing is. In rodeos, and in these county saddles clubs, kids, teens, men and women compete in their respective age groups on horseback. The arena can be set for the clover leaf pattern, which is a series of three barrels. At the highest running speed each rider is comfortable with, they run around the barrels, hoping to get the fastest time.

In addition to this summer series, the Broken Spur Saddle Club has shows throughout the fall and early spring. Riders who are members of the saddle club earn points throughout the year with each race, and those with the highest points in each age group earn the opportunity to go to state competitions in the fall.
