We will be starting our barrel season on March 26th
(provided we don’t get any rain between now and then).
We will run our standard divisions – Open, Youth, Novice, Peewee, Poles and Men’s race (as long as we have any stand-up gentleman that will run!)
The 4D barrel racing format means that in the same race we have 4
divisions. All riders, regardless of ability, run in the same barrel race. The four
divisions are then determined by time brackets. The fastest time sets the
determines all subsequent divisions and the distribution of places.
In the Valley as well as our 4D the format is as follows:
(Fastest, +.5, +1, +2) (Triple Seven Rules below)
Example: 1D = 18.00, 2D = 18.50, 3D = 19.00, 4D = 20.00
So here we have these 4 divisions separated by time results and in each of these divisions, we have winners. The number of
places that are paid is determined on how many riders we have entered.
