Barrel Racing The NFR (National Finals Rodeo) is a rodeo where all of these people come together from all over the world to compete in this. There are different events that are made for both boys and girls. In the NFR there are a lot of events made for everybody. Some of the famous events are Team Roping and Barrel Racing that are the most famous that have been featured in the rodeo’s. There were at least two starting associations made for woman barrel racers. The first association made was called the GRA (Girls Rodeo Association) developed specifically for women and girls. The second association was called the WPRA (Women’s Professional Rodeo Association), it was developed in 1948 and is still an association today. Now there are over five Barrel Racing Associations in the United States. Barrel Racing has been around before the 1950’s. The pattern of the event is in a shape of a triangle. The event “Barrel Racing” first got started in Texas when the wives had nothing to do when their husband was gone out to a roping event or something when they invented Barrel Racing.
