This event is a horse race with turns. The cowgirl’s time begins as she rides her horse across the starting line in the arena. She makes her run around three upright barrels, which are arranged in a cloverleaf pattern, and back to the starting line where the clock stops. Tipping a barrel is permitted, but if it is knocked to the ground, a 5-second penalty is added to her time..
