Best Answer

Jump racing in Britain is formally known as National Hunt Racing. It is a type of racing where horses have to run around a course and jump over obstacles called fences and hurdles. The most famous National Hunt race is the Grand National which includes 30 fences and is run over a distance of 4 1/2 miles. This is the longest National Hunt race in Britain.

Is barrel racing harder than jumping on a horse?

Speaking from experience ( I'm a hunter/jumper ) jumping is much harder. While I believe both are dangerous at times, jumping horses ( especially stadium jumping ) is much harder due to the actual task at hand. Barrel racing is like the jump off round but without the actual jumps. As jumpers we're making the same sharp, pivoting turns while also having to jump over a standard that can be well over 5 ft high and we're having to do this while racing against the clock trying not only to jump the jump ( w/out horse refusing) but also jump it cleanly. Jumping is MUCH harder!
