* If only one horse places in a division, that horse shall receive the entire payout for that division. If NO horses fall into any one particular division, the payout for that division will be divided equally between the remaining divisions. Times that do not fall within a division will not receive payouts.

70% payouts (meaning the percentage of the entry fee that goes toward payouts).

If a tie occurs where monies are involved, the monies will be divided equally.


Once a year, ALL participants of KLG Barrel Racing events must sign annd submit the “Release of liability waivers." There are TWO documents, one general liability and one safety equipment release. Unless you wear a helmet, you are required to sign and submit BOTH of the documents. Once you sign the waivers, they cover you for all KLG Barrel Racing events within a 12 month period.

Note: There are two versions of the document – one is for those under age of majority.


We are always looking for new volunteers to help out and are in need of folks to help set-up poles and work the gate – please let us know if you are able to assist.  We schedule volunteers on a first come, first serve basis.
