Watch Draft Horse Barrel Racing!

Although barrel racing is a very popular equine sport, it’s rare to see draft horses barrel racing. This video was taken at the end of the annual draft horse show at the 2013 Georgia National Fair in Perry. It’s one of the few draft horse shows in the country that offer the class. To be honest, I’d rather barrel race a draft horse than most “traditional” barrel racing horses. I’m too chicken to barrel race most horses! Share this on Facebook if you’d ride a Draft horse around a barrel pattern!

    Most of these riders can not ride and do not need to be riding! I feel so bad for these horses!

    Would someone please tell some of these riders heels down, head up and sit in that saddle..!!! .I ride a half-draft horse. Yes, he is bouncy but he lopes those barrels like nothing. I am no expert but gosh… none of them knew how to neck rein one handed either…..weird.
