How is racing played?

Barrel racing is a rodeo event that involves you, your horse, and 3 barrels. It is a timed event. There are 3 barrels in the shape of a clover leaf. As you run in you go to the right side and turn the first barrel (but you can also go the other way and start at your left). Then you run to the second barrel and turn that then you are on your way to the 3rd and last barrel. as soon as you are done with that, you race home as fast as you and your horse can and to try and beat the clock. Barrel Racing is a very fun, but competitive sport. Some people think that to be a Barrel Racer you have to have an expensive horse but all you need is being able to enjoy such a fun and addicting sport!
