You win by having the fastest time.
The fastest time I've seen so far for NBHA was 14.658
12.369 ever but it varies everywhere
12.321 seconds is the lowest ever.... but a girl named Amanda somthing won this yr at the 2011 barrel racing champs she got 13.56 fastest yet this yr
13.9 sec is the fastest time ever ran. But yes it does matter by the size of the arena but as long as the barrells are set up at 90,105,105feet its the same size.
@ the Rodeo i go to if you win, you get close to $140 for fastest time
The fastest time usually depends on the arena. Some patterns are bigger or smaller than others and the ground is different causing different effects on you and your horse and giving different times.
You may touch the barrel. If the barrel is knocked over, there is a time penalty.
9.17 I believe is the fastest time on barrel racing. Hope that this helps. =)16 seconds is the fastest timeThe fastest time cant NOT be 16 seconds you dip. Because in the NFR the girls run 13 and 12's. and plus Liz Pikston ran the fastest time so far which is like a 10 or something like thatthere really isn't a "fastest time" because some barrel courses are shorter or longer than others. so if you have a course that is measured correctly, 16 seconds is a good and a really fast time.Well to be a little more helpful, the fast barrel horses are 1D and in my lifetime of showing and breeding barrel horses, I've never seen a horse run faster then 11 seconds. It does also depend on the distance of the barrels. If they are the set distance, 15 seconds will get you first. Ive done it, and Ive seen it done.no 16 senconds is not the fastest because i got o the quarther horse congress every year and there are horses who run times of 11 to 15 and any way when i do contesting in 4-h there are kids who run 16s all the time"there really isn't a "fastest time" because some barrel courses are shorter or longer than others. so if you have a course that is measured correctly, 16 seconds is a good and a really fast time."Like i said ^^^^^ the measurment of the course mattersIn barrel racing, the times make all the difference. and so does the course. seconds is a fast time, but most times are in the 14-16 range. I myself have had a 16.299 and a 16.246Hey, I'm a NBHA barrel racer, and the fastest NBHA time is currently 13.6 seconds, with Hot Shot, but the size of the barrel courses vary, as I see some of you have already said. There could be a faster time than Hot Shot's, but the only recorded ones are from the NBHA. & I don't think 9.17 seconds is even possible on NBHA courses. It may be on much smaller ones, but I've never even seen (or heard of) someone running 12 seconds. Also, there are different divisions, so it's hard to say the fastest time. But the current world record of all barrel horses is 13.670 from a 1D barrel horse, Hot Shot.
In barrel racing 5 seconds is added for each nocked over barrel but in some contests if a barrel is nocked over its a dq and if u nock over all three its a dq
It depends where they are racing at
depends on the size of the ring but an average time is 15.859 sec.
You might want to look that up on Wikipedia or ask some one who knows/looks up that sort of thing. I think they have a video of it on Youtube. I hope that helped.:)
on a normal pattern, it is usually 16 seconds or less.. :)
The horse that has run the fastest time is Hot Shot, but they don't run that everytime..
barrel racing is about you and your horse trusting each other. And going around all three barrels and getting really close to them without knocking them over... Your goal is to beat everybody out and get the best time.
It is used for a western sport called barrel racing where horses and their rider races aroung barrels trying to get the fastest time. Its lighter than a regular western saddle and the rider can sit well while the horse still makes sharp turns and sliding stops.
600km In 1978 a barrel of rum fell out of a plane
The fastest time in NASCAR history was recorded in a Ford Thunderbird in 1988. The car was driven by Bill Elliott during qualifying at Talladega Superspeedway.
Barrel Racing started when women wanted an event to compete in with each other that would be a challenge, but still fair. They came up with the idea of taking Texas Oil Drums. 55 gallon barrels, and setting them up in a cloverleaf pattern, with one left turn and two rights. Then they would take their husbands roping horses and see who could get through the course with the fastest time.
No, if you go to a competitive barrel race we run like 14-16. For a beginner that is okay however, you have to start somewhere! :)
Secretariate. When he was racing he was getting faster and faster each quarter, and he does hold the fastest quarter time.
