Barrel Racer 
Barrel Racing is a rodeo event in which a horse and rider race to complete a clover-leaf pattern around preset 50 gallon barrels in the fastest time. It is mostly a sport for women.

In 1998 I chose to do a film project in black & white and a rodeo event at the Florida Sports Park fit the bill.

I was introduced to a rider from northern Florida that competed in barrel riding around the state.

Here are some images of the event.

Other events in the rodeo included bull riding and calf roping.
