Submitted by: Kaylynn Nunn

... hosted another successful and rainy weekend of barrel racing. Barrel racers from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Idaho, Arizona and Montana came to the Cardston Agridome to compete in the barrel racing competition which hosted 150 competitors.

The Futurity competition is for young horses, ages 3 to 5 years old, and the Derby is for horses ages 6 to 7 years old. Each horse gets two chances to run, and then the top 15 come back to compete in the short round. Buckles and prizes are given to the winners.

Nicole Pana from Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan was the Futurity winner, and Carmen Pozzobon from Kamloops, B.C., was the Derby winner.

Three open jackpots were also held during the event for any horse to participate. Many local barrel racers entered the events to compete against the futurity and derby horses...
