Dash 4 Cash was formed by a group of friends, who saw the need for extra barrel racing events in South Australia.
What is Barrel Racing?
Barrel racing is a timed speed event on horse-back. At club level/divisional barrel races, it is open to anyone with a horse. It is not a women on a Quarter Horse. Both boys and girls and women and men can compete on any horse in any gear. We encourage everyone to come along and give it a try! You do not need to be a speed demon! We have incentives for all levels.

Diagram of a Barrel Racing Course. Riders enter at the red line, circle around the 1st barrel, proceed to the 2nd barrel, and then continue on to the 3rd where they will complete the pattern and finally exit the course crossing the red line a second time. This pattern is often referred to as a “Cloverleaf”. The pattern may also begin with the left barrel first.
When are events held?
Events are held in the warmer months, as most barrel racers are allergic to the cold!!
All events are run under the ABHA rules, click here for the latest rules.
However, we are based on private property and there are some guidelines to entering the property.
There are designated spectator areas viewing and parking area, no prams, or children left unattended in the horse warm up area or near the entrance to the arena.
These areas are fenced off. PLEASE REMOVE ALL RUBBISH, HORSE MANURE AND HAY – TAKE IT WITH YOU.
