“Whether it’s running barrels for me or just being my freedom, my horses mean the world to me. They deserve to feel healthy, happy and comfortable. I have loved the results I see with my BEMER Horse-Set. My horses are more relaxed and I can feel their tension release. It’s important to have products you believe in and therapies your horses benefit from. I believe in BEMER and my horses love it too!”

About the Sport

Barrel racing is a rodeo event in which a horse and rider attempt to run a cloverleaf pattern around preset barrels in the fastest time. Though both sexes compete at amateur and youth levels, in collegiate and professional ranks, it is usually a rodeo event for women. It combines the horse’s athletic ability and the horsemanship skills of a rider in order to safely and successfully maneuver the horse around three barrels placed in a triangle pattern within a large arena.
