There is a reason that is my absolute favorite rodeo of the year. That's on my bucket list to rodeo there, even if I never am able to rodeo anywhere else. Bailey would do SO well there. She's a lot more run then she is turn, and so am I! LOL

On the RFD channel they have a show called Women's Pro Rodeo and it's barrel racing at different places. I just saw the Pendleton episode. It's crazy!

Sorry, I'm clueless.
Like drum said, it all depends.

The length of the patterns all depend on the size of the arena.

A bigger arena most likely means a bigger pattern.

Of course if it is a race put on by certain associations they may require all of their patterns be the same size.

Most arenas are set up with markers that mark where the barrels should be in the cloverleaf pattern....but this does not prevent them from being pulled in or expanded out if need be.

The size of the pattern is very important though, the size will be set before the first run and will not change during the performances.

My mare would love that, she's used to just flat out galloping over long distances thanks to fox hunting. She would love all the extra space to just stretch out.

I love watching the runs from Pendleton.

If I ever get a horse good enough to haul some of the circuit, I would love to get to run at Pendleton. Nothing like an all-out horse race!
