3-d format

What is the 3-D format? The show I am going to next month has barrel racing the first night and that's what it says. Just curious? I'm really excited to watch it.

Do you need those special glasses?

Sorry, that's the first thing that came to mind. I don't know either, but I'm interested to find out what the difference is...

I was thinking 3-d glasses too but that would be really scary because I'm not sure what I'd do if I saw a big ol horse coming at me out of the arena that fast!

I am geussing the 3 barrels in the figure 8 clover-ey type pattern?

It's a barrel class with 3 divisions. Ugh. I'm blanking on how the divisions are set right now because I haven't had enough Diet Coke, but the fastest horses will be 1D, middle horses 2D and slowest are 3D.

ETA: I just found the explanation of the format. It's usually 4D, so that's how the NBHA explains it:
"Q: How does the 4-D format work?
A: All riders, regardless of ability, run in the same 4-D barrel race. The four divisions are then determined by time brackets. With the 4-D format, the OVERALL fastest time of the race is used to set the time brackets for the four divisions. The NBHA awards points to members IN ALL DIVISIONS on a 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 basis for first place through fifth place, regardless of the number of entries or paying places. · 1st Division: These are the riders with the fastest times. · 2nd Division: These are competitors who ran ONE-HALF (1/2) SECOND or SLOWER than the OVERALL fastest time. · 3rd Division: These are competitors who ran ONE (1) SECOND or SLOWER than the OVERALL fastest time. · 4th Division: These are competitors who ran TWO (2) SECONDS or SLOWER than the OVERALL fastest time."

Oh. I knew that. I was confused by the format thing. It sounded like it would be set up or run differently than regular barrels.

No. Some shows just don't have enough competitors to make 4 decent sized divisions, so they do 3. They do 3 often around here.
