I didn't understand either until I asked my friend who's a bull rider and he likes to barrel race. His answer, "Don't judge. Bull riding's a guys sport but you still do it and we don't make fun of you...besides, I like feeling the wind in my hair." hahaha sorry I just had to share that...he's such a goof.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Maybe in the rodeo it is. But not at open shows, breed shows, NBHA, IBRA, or any other asociation. Except GBRA. My boyfriend likes to barrel race, not more than bull riding but enough. I don't see barrel racing as a chick sport, but I grew up racing against both sexes

I'm with you, guys can so do it too. But the guys I know think it's a chick sport.
Like roping it's for both sexes but more guys do it then girls.
So cutting, both do that.

To answer your questions/comments....most guys who barrel race started doing it when they were kids. There parents were most likely going to the rodeo anyways, and it would have been the only event, besides steer riding, that they would have been able to compete in. So they get used to competing in it, and when they can start doing other events they could drop it or keep going with it. It is not against the rules.

And about the OP....my boyfriend grew up as a none rider, but totally supports me in the riding/horse thing. I dont think it would take much convincing later down the road if we got out own place for us to get two horses....one for him and one for me. He probably wont turn out to be a great rider, but I will ensure that he is at least a capaple rider.

It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows. --Epictetus
