what is your time in barrels?
hey everyone i was just thinking to my self about barrel raceing and was just wondering what is everyones fastest time?

16 even

And it depends on what arena size you are racing some. There are some arenas were my fastest would be awful, and some others where I would end up winning.

18 even but fun even if you don't win

Depends on the arena. I have placed in 1D with a 17. The fastest time I've gotten has been something like a 14.6 but that was in an itty bitty arena. I'm usually in the 16s.

I think our non-rodeo barrel courses (i.e. Ag shows and PC) must be bigger. State qualifying time is under 21 sec, and winning times at state are normally 18/19.

I don't really focus on barrelling, bending has always been my thing, but my fastes is low twenties/high 19's.

Ugh. I love a good pole horse. Diesel just obliterates them though :[

Lol! My little arab is practically unbeaten in bending, seriosuly, he sees the poles and just transforms. It's amazing to ride, too. It feels like he just runs straight but sways his body... You have to shrink your knees against him to miss the poles!

The horse I had before Diesel was like them. She just lit up when she saw them. She despised barrels though. Now I have the complete opposite. Go figure.

Yup, Wildey hates barrels too! He's great at all the twisty turny games, but games were hehas to actually be fast to win, he doesn't like so much. lol.

36 last time my friend timed us! Haha, we were trotting it though and willow got distracted on the way home when she saw the ponies chasing each other.
