Top 10 Personality Traits of a Barrel Racer


You make your best friend jump on your back and you see how fast you can run the clover-leaf pattern. You usually try and beat your horses personal best, and if you do, you have some serious work to do.


You set up chairs in your house and run the pattern. This usually ends up with you tripping over something your siblings or parent placed on the floor in a strategic place to watch you fail. Humiliating, but funny.


You always tell your friends not to swing there shoulder when turning a corner. You're friends will get annoyed of you sooner or later. But, it is a force of habit and you really can't help it.


You 'click' every time you want someone to go faster. Everybody knows those people in the hall, store or sidewalk that always walk extremely slow. Just click at them, it will get them moving.


When you're in the car that is going thirty-five to forty-five miles an hour and you say, "My horse could be running faster than us right now." They usually don't believe you, but you always offer to prove it!


You will nudge the person next to you to move over. Usually this one ends in a random person thinking your an alien from Jupiter. But that's alright considering you will probably never see them again.


When seeing a horse along side the road, you analyze it to see if it would have the muscle for a barrel horse. Hmmm, looks like it doesn't have enough power in the butt, or shoulders. Not my type.


When you go to a fancy restaurant you see if the tables are set up in the barrel pattern. If they are, you will probably run them as fast as you can. We you do this you usually will get left at the restaurant with no ride home.


When you see people running you check to see if they switch leads going around a corner. Obviously people don't have leads, but you check anyways.


You make sure that you bring your stop watch everywhere. You never know when something happens and you could say, "Me and my horse can run a pattern faster than that."
