The Barriere and District Riding Club (BDRC) recently announced they will be hosting a Winter Buckle Gymkhana Series at the North Thompson Agriplex in Barriere. The series will be held over six events, and each event will include a four game division of barrel racing, pole bending, stakes race, and keyhole race.
The six days of the series will be; Jan. 11, Jan. 18, Feb. 8, Feb. 17, Mar. 7, and Mar. 21.
To qualify for the Winter Buckle Series final prizes and buckles riders must attend a minimum of three of the six days, points will be counted from each event that the riders attend, up to all six.
Competitors must be a current member of the BDRC to qualify for series prizes but not to qualify for day prizes.
Series event organizer Kyra Blackburn says, “We are planning this event to take no more than three hours in and out and it will be starting at 10 a.m. each of the six days.”
Blackburn says each day of the series will run an over 18, and an under 18 class with a five second split in the 4D system “allowing for the slower riders to have a shot also”.
She also noted, “We will not be offering a leadline class for this series as the indoor can get busy and we need to think safety first.”
There will also be a small concession on site which will be cash by donation.
“I am excited to offer this series,” said Blackburn, “And I look forward to seeing you all there. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 250-214-1924, or through Facebook messenger to: Kyra Marie.”
