Barrel racing is a sport that takes a lot of skill if you want to be good. What you do in barrel racing is you ride a horse around barrels in a cloverleaf pattern and what ever horse and rider has the fastest time wins. It takes a lot of practice not only do you have to ride your horse all the time you have to learn how to control the horses speed going to and around the barrel and if you knock a barrel down it is a no time.
You need to know how to care for a horse so it is healthy to ride and that means to make sure you feed your horse the right way, to get their feet done every 6 weeks , and to love the horse so the horse loves and trusts you. Another thing you have to know is how to ride. Riding can be easy or hard depending on the person. For me it is easy because I have been doing it all my life.
The way barrel racing fits in to this career cluster is that barrel racing is a type of performance because you are riding in front of people as a kind of entertainment .
I would have to do high school rodeo. High school rodeo is like regular shows except there are scouts to see if there is anyone good enough to do the WPR or Womens Pro Rodeo.
Becoming pro is very hard and takes a lot of money and time . Money alone is a big reason a lot of good barrel racers don’t go pro because paying for a show alone can cost from $30 per run to $300 per run. You also have to figure traveling from state to state is a lot of money because of gas and buying a good horse can range from $1,000 to $100,000 Feeding them also takes a lot of money.
