How Big Is Barrel Racing in Your Area?

How popular is it and what kind of shows are normal for the area? Just curious.

The one I show at is somewhat big (more local).. Its usually just Barrels and Poles but on occasions we have a club sponser a Fun day, which includes all sorts of silly games! (Orleans County Boots and Saddle Club! :))

The other one is the Attica rodeo. I'm pretty sure that one is more popular (less local). I've never actually gone to it (i plan to in the future :)) but they hold Cattle penning, Barrel Racing, Barrel racing clinics and APHA shows?

My area is all Ibra and nbha shows, barely any open shows. Barrel Racing is the biggest thing around here. Pretty much show with the same crowd every weekend lol.

Very popular here. I event, but when I tell people that they assume it is barrel racing. When I explain that it is not, they are dumbfounded. Lmao

We have a bigger western scene than english. In the summer there is always a show (mostly western) We have quite a few barrel racers, as well as doing games like the down and back.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

It's incredibly popular here. We have an extremely versatile scene of riders but I bet you at least 80% of he "Other" disciplines still do it to go play. And then the strict ones are highly competitive.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

It's popular. Most people around here are casual trail riders and pleasure riders, but most of the competition is either Western Pleasure or barrel type events.
