Barrel times

Can someone tell me what times fall into 1D, 2D, 3d, 4D?

It's relative. Everything depends on the fastest run for that day in that arena.

Say the fastest run for the day is a 15.0

Then, 15.0 will be the 1D time.
15.5 will be the 2D time.
16.0 will be the 3D time.
17.0 will be the 4D time.

So 2D is a half second off the 1D time. 3D is one full second off the 1D time. 4D is two full seconds off of the 1D time.

Every arena is a different size so a 1D time in one arena can be a 3D time in another.

Thank you Buckoff, I wasn't sure if it varied at all. So if someone says there horse runs 1D/2D times it really could be 3D somewhere else?

Not really. It means they run consistently in the faster times.

Nope... the "D"s are a way to classify the level of horse in that area.

A 1D/2D horse will typically run 1D/2D times in most arenas it runs in.

Now, around here we have some small 4D's. I've placed with a beginner horse in the 2D/3D... but I wouldnt have classified that horse as a TRUE 2D/3D horse. Just because if I had taken the horse to a larger competition, he probably would have been a 4D or lesser horse. I PERSONALLY classify a horse by how they run at an NBHA super show. I think at one of these competitions you can find out the TRUE "D" that the horse falls into.
