All the action from the weekends Barrel Racing competition

BARREL RACING: The Gympie Horse and Rodeo Association held the third and fourth round of the Speed2Succeed barrel racing competition.

One of the Speed2Succeed directors Sheree Bright said there were 127 open competitors and another 50 juniors who competed on Saturday and Sunday.

Competitors arrived on the Friday as it was used as a practice day before the competition got under way.

She said riders from as far south as Victoria and some north in Rockhampton competed.

A slight rain did not dampen the event and the water helped the surface of the arena, Bright said.

This is the third time this event has been held in Gympie.

The final two rounds will be held in Gympie again on October 10 and 11 to determine the overall winner for the season.
