Cloverleaf or Speed Events
Is a timed event. Three barrels are set up in the arena, usually evenly distanced. The Rider/Horse must circle to the outside and around the barrel to the inside of the course. The Rider/Horse combination are immediately disqualified if the barrels are touched in such a manner to dislodge them or if they are knocked down. After completing the course, the Rider/Horse combination must race back through the start flags. If the Rider/Horse go off course in any way, they will be disqualified.
