I just don't see how that is so.. people jump, work cows (cutting/sorting) rope, event etcetera, on grass-- and believe me, cutting is way more rigorous work than barrels.. I can't see how its more likely to pull a muscle/tendon, etc.. I believe the deep dirt would be more subject to giving the horse some kind of sprain, pulled muscle, etc.. especially after stepping off in a hole from where another horse has packed the loose stuff down..
The most I would worry about is possibly slipping after a rainy day..
