4-State Barrel Racing Featuring The Best Of The Best In
Their Division

barrelracerThe Invitational NBHA Barrel Racing Showdown is coming again to Horsefest this year. It will take place Saturday, March 22 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., in the Arena.

Barrel Racing is a fun and exciting fast paced event that teaches competitors to become skilled horsemen or horsewomen. Beginners to professionals, weekend warriors, seniors and youth all compete in the divisional format which allows competitors to learn and compete at their own pace and still be competitive.

This race will be a District Showdown as 32 barrel racing competitors comprised of the top two contestants in the Open 4D from the districts of Arkansas 07, Oklahoma 02, Kansas 02 and Missouri 02 have been invited. These contestants hauled to their district jackpots over the course of last year and this is an added honor to compete at Horsefest.

This race is patterned after the National Barrel Horse Association (NBHA) who revolutionized the barrel racing industry by pioneering the divisional format. There will be an NBHA booth #214 in the West Hall where Horsefest goers may get more information on the sport of barrel racing and becoming a member of this organization.
