5YR OLD ARABIAN GELDING

I HAVE A 5YR OLD ARABIAN GELDING, HE LEARNS FAST. MY QUESTION IS, WOULD THIS BE A GOOD HORSE FOR BARREL RACING, I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY EXPERIENCE WITH BARREL HORSES, I NEED TO KNOW THE DISTANCE FROM BARREL TO BARREL, AND FROM THE STARTING POINT TO THE FIRST BARREL,

How far away are the barrels suppose to be?

I know this probably sounds dumb, but how far away are the barrels suppose to be. And the poles too?

A standard barrel pattern in the WPRA

A standard barrel pattern in the WPRA is as follows: 60’ from the score line to the 1st and 2nd barrels 90’ from the 1st to the 2nd barrel 105’ from the 1st and 2nd barrels to the 3rd barrel This is a large pattern and many times it won’t fit in smaller arenas.

Arabian For Barrel Racing

Could you please advise how far apart to set the racing barrels. I have an Arabian and wanted to see if you she could do this.

4-H Barrel Pattern

I know how far apart to set the barrels for standard barral racing. But how far apart do you set them for a 4-H pattern? Just a little need-to-know.

Distance between each barrel

Measurements depend on the arena and the association

Therapeutic riding business

We have six horses and a therapeutic riding business in the North Country New York.

how far from the fences in the arena to set the barrels

I would definitely try to keep my barrels at least 21 feet off the fence for the 1st and 2nd barrels and 35-40 feet for the 3rd barrel.

LENGTH AND WIDTH OF AN ARENA

WE HAVE A FEW ACRES AND WERE WONDERING WHAT THE DIMENSIONS OF A BARREL RACING TRACK IS.

Pattern for practice

My daughter, is 9 years old. she is starting 4H this year. I need to know what the dimensions of the barrels are. So I can properly set them up for her to practice.
