Western games- flags

Is there a specific name for the game where there's a pail full of sand on the top of a barrel with a flag and you ride up to it, grab the flag, ride around to another barrel opposite the one you got the flag from and try to put the flag in that pail. Generally the barrel are set up in a triangular formation as if you were going to do barrel racing. For the life of me I can't remember what exactly it's called and I can't find any good description of it.

At the horse shows I go to the class is just called "flag" or "flag race." I've never heard it called anything else, but I'm sure there are other names out there.

When I did it in 4h it was called Flag Race. I really like it as I was pretty good at it.

We just call it "Flags" here. It's my favorite event ever! I hold an arena record here for a 7.9 second run.
