Cloverleaf barrel racing established in 1957, became the competitive event for cowgirls that would determine who would be named the All-Around Champion Cowgirl. It will be these cowgirls who will add the color and excitement of championship rodeo here in the rodeo arena.
An important part of barrel racing is, of course, the well-trained and seasoned horse. It takes months of practice, years of hauling and thousands of dollars to produce a barrel racing prospect. The barrel horse must have speed, stamina and strength. They must be able to run fast, stop short, roll back in a turn and – most importantly – they must have the will to win. Training and riding the barrel racing horse takes dedication and patience. A good horse can’t perform without a determined and experienced rider.
