Australian Barrel Horse Association Rules



We at Speed2Succeed believe in keeping your horse fresh and competitive from the start of the season to the end of the season, that is why we have rollover times.

You will notice that the online nomination form has a little box for rollovers. Basically this means that you can run your horse in the Open 4D then rollover that time into the Juniors, Futurity, Derby or Beginners.

This saves you from actually riding in any of those events so your horse doesn't finish up exhausted at the end of the weekend.
This concept works extremely well in the States and keeps their horses in top condition!

Keep in mind though that if you knock a drum, that is what will be rolled over. So just tick the box and note that it must be on the same horse.

Rollovers must be paid for and requested at the time of nominations.


Horses 4, 5 and 6 years old (as shown on registration certificates or vet certificate - see under Forms for approved form) are eligible to compete in the futurity and horses aged 7 years are considered Derby horses!!

If a horse is deemed to be eligible for futurity events at the first round of the Makin it Mega, it can then continue to race as a futurity horse for the entire series.

Competitions such as the Barrel Bonanza will be judged as the horses age on the day!! So get your registration cetificates or download the appropriate form (S2S website - forms) to have your vet verify your horses age & enter up!! Its that easy!!

Fantastic opportunity to get your young prospects out and about and season them to the pressures of competiton at their own level!!

Remember if you intend to run your young horse in the Open 4D, you may ''roll over'' your time to the futurity or derby so your not over exerting your horse with multiple runs for the day....see more info on the ''rollover'' policy in the earlier posts and inbox us if you have any questions!!!! It will be exciting to see the young up and coming barrel racing talent that australia has to offer!!
