Talk about a HUGE pattern..

Earlier today I was talking with SorrelHorse and she had said I had to Google the Pendleton Roundup..So I did..and I am wowed by this pattern.. It is HUGE and it is insane!! Poor Hickory would die before he got to the second barrel..These girls have some major skills..You really have to ride those horses and bring them back down enough to rate from that run and turn..Wow..Just had to share!

Just out of curiousity, can you set up a barrel pattern with different distances for each "rodeo"? Is that what you even call it - a rodeo? Can the distances be moved? Then the fastest wins?

Sorry, I'm clueless.

Well, in the rodeo circuit here, all off the arena's are different sizes, so they try and make the patterns the same, but some of them get squished down to fit the arena, some some get blow up by a few feet. If you go on the circuit, I believe at the end of the year, your times are added up and the lowest score wins, or your placings get averaged... I don't actually know.

Baileyjo, It really depends on the circuit, association, arena..whoever is putting on the show. They will have set guidelines as to where each prop is placed. It's usually based on the barrels having to be 10 feet off of the arena wall at each barrel. The pattern sizes can be all different lengths. Most association shows will try to keep the pattern the same but it's really based on the arena and who is sponsoring the show.

Also, all of the associations and such I've ever ran with, the way you are placed at the end of the year is based on your placings and point throughout the season.. Like this.. Say they are placing 6 people. 1st = 6points, 2nd = 5..and so on..Then say you have ten shows..all of those points are added up at the end of the year and you will see who has overall highest points.
