The Indians would go out on a field with their horses and barrel race.
Some do, it depends on the horse and how good the trainer is. However, the best barrel racing hoorses are probably Quarter Horses --------------------------------------------------- it is actually called a standardbred. ANd yes, they can barrel race, some better than others but this breed is known for its versitility

A barrel race is a race in which a horse must be ridden around standing barrels.

Ok, this will be long. Barrel racing is a sport where mostly women race in a cloverleaf pattern and try to get the fastest time. The best horses for this sport tend to be quarter horses, but I, as a barrel racer, prefer palominos. It is important that the horses used have the athletic ability and are treated like athletes. This sport does not abuse horses because the horses used are properly trained and love what they do. MOST people that race a lot have backup horses as well so that their main horses can get a break. My horse is named Gold Dust and I think there are some really cool names out there. I also like the concept of a registered name and a barn name so I call my horse Firefly. I'm not at a super intense level so I only have one horse. Actually I am just starting but I have known a lot about the sport for a long time. Hope this helps. If you want to know more you should watch a barrel race vlog. I find it easier than explaining it to everyone to have them watch one.
They can be good race horses against other Morgans, but not against Thoroughbreds or Quarter horses.
Barrels are to small to fit any one horse into it. So no horses can fit into a barrel.
