November brings the Barrel Futurities of America World Championships. Join us as we celebrate EquiStat’s BFA all-time leaders from the historic show.

Data compiled by EquiStat, the statistical division of Cowboy Publishing Group

The competition is always intense at the Barrel Futurities of America World Championships, and taking home top honors is exactly that—an honor. That’s because some of the best barrel horses in the industry have competed at the event, and the show’s list of all-time winners reads like a who’s-who of the sport.

Beginning in 1986, the BFA is the capstone championship for futurity horses, held annually in Oklahoma City. In 2019, the BFA moved to The Lazy E Arena in Guthrie, Oklahoma, where it continues to be the premier event for young barrel horses.

Here, EquiStat presents a look at the horses, competitors, owners, breeders, sires and dams that have won the most money at the BFA World Championships, including earnings from all classes offered at the show. It’s fair to note that EquiStat’s reporting began in 1988, so the BFA’s first two years are missing from the database.

*Editor’s note: From 2000 to 2005, the BFA offered a 5-year-old futurity but has since discontinued that futurity. These charts still include earnings from those years in which running a 5-year-old futurity horse was an option.
