Barrel racing, in which horse and rider gallop in a cloverleaf pattern around three barrels, is the fastest-growing rodeo event. Author Sharon Camarillo, a successful contestant-turned trainer, teacher, and commentator, presents a comprehensive program that takes the novice barrel racer from the process of choosing her horse up to preparation for and taking part in real races. More than just a specialized manual, Barrel Racing for Fun and Fast Times offers advice that will benefit riders of all disciplines, including ways to care for and condition the equine athlete, selecting appropriate and proper-fitting equipment, acquiring the “winning edge” that allows us to achieve competitive success, and more. 160 color illustrations.
After qualifying four times for the National Finals Rodeo (the sport’s “World Series”), Sharon Camarillo retired from competition to become a trainer and clinician. Barrel racing’s most visible spokesperson, she provides color commentary for Rodeo Houston and selected other television events. Camarillo was elected to the Cowgirls Hall of Fame in 2006. She lives in Lockeford, California.
