Introducing the Top 15 NFR Barrel Racing Qualifiers

2019 NFR Barrel Racers

The top 15 NFR barrel racing qualifiers are all settled in Las Vegas and will soon be blasting down the alley at the Thomas & Mack.

In anticipation of the rodeo action, I’m excited to share some background stats and descriptions of the horse power (with pedigree links!) we can look forward to seeing during this years race to the gold buckle.

So before the gates open, let’s dive in and get to know these these amazing women and their horses – who we can look forward to entertaining, educating, and inspiring us at the 2019 NFR and beyond!
