1D is the group with the fastest horses clocking the best times, 4D is the group with the slowest times. It goes from fastest to slowest: 1D, 2D, 3D, and 4D. Our horses average in the 2-3D times. The divisions (groups) change with the arenas and sizes of the barrel patterns (for local/schooling shows), but it should stay the same if the same horses are there and it's the same sized pattern. They're usually used in the for sale ads that barrel horses have, hopefully coupled with the average time and it's usually on a standard sized pattern. I can't tell you the specifics in sizing the patterns, because I don't know them off hand.
Hope I helped some.(:

1D = fastest time of the day
2D = fastest horse that is equal to or slower than the agreed-upon split (typically 1/2 second from the 1D time)
3D = fastest horse that is equal to or slower than the agreed-upon split (typically 1 second from the 1D time)
4D = fastest horse that is equal to or slower than the agreed-upon split (typically 2 seconds from the 1D time)

tht is what I thought it was. But I was looking at show bills and was stating that one class is for 1-D and the class after that was a 2-D, But my concern about that is how would you know which to go into at that show?

That's odd--I've never heard of having two different classes run in different ways, unless they call one "division format" (meaning the aforementioned splits) and one a "jackpot" (meaning a straight race, only the fastest times place). The latter isn't typically referred to as "1D only" or anything like that....

If you're right about how they're running it, then choose the one you have the better chance of placing in. If you're really competitive, either one is fine, but there's probably more money in the jackpot. If you're more likely to be running a good split behind the leaders, then the division format gives you a better chance of placing.

1D is the fastest time.
2D is a half second off the fastest time. So horses that were under a half second off the winning time will place in the 1D. Horses after a half second will place 2D. 3D is usually a second off the winning time and on down. Hope this makes sense :)
