           Whistlin Bit Barrel Open 3D


                                   Printable Flyer click here             


WBSC is holding a Barrel Bash with added money open to everyone of all ages and genders at the arena in Elkader by the race track.  No matter if you're racing or not you can come to enjoy the day of fun watching or cheering the contestants on.

                                 It will be an event for all to enjoy.

The event will start at Noon sharp in order of sign up. The arena will be open prior to the event for warm ups, but once race has started contestants will be asked to leave the arena. The race track can be utilized for warm up. Entry fees will be paid per horse ran, allowing each rider to run more than one horse, but one horse cannot be used by multiple riders. Riders will be able to run the gate unless safety concerns arise.

 There will be an electric timer used for more accurate timing.

We ask that all horses are up to date on shots and Coggins.

 Also riders respect the grounds and clean up after yourselves and your horses.

 Please do not clean out trailers on the property.

Pay out will not be until after all of the contestants have ran.

*Note changes may be made to this page on the information above.


Contact NaTasha Berns or Danielle Koehn for more information.












             See you next year! As always the second Sunday of October!
