FarmTek Barrel Racing System
For over 30 years, FarmTek has provided high quality, electronic timing systems for rodeos, English riding events, motor sports, athlete training, and more. Whether you are managing your own timed events or practicing at home, you will get accurate results every time with the FarmTek system. In addition to barrel racing and pole bending, the system can be easily upgraded to time additional events such as team roping and ranch sorting. The barrel racing system automatically starts and stops with an electric eye beam for simple, hands-free timing. The timer can be set to ignore intermediate beam breaks for multiple-pass events like the figure eight and relays. For each new rider, the timer automatically starts at zero, meaning no manual reset is required and riders won’t have to wait on a timed reset. Penalties can also be added and will automatically update on any connected scoreboard. The barrel racing system by FarmTek features convenient wireless operation, making it easy to set up and tear down. The barrel racing system includes the Polaris timing console, one pair of electronic eyes, two tripods, a custom hard-shell carrying case, and batteries for all the equipment. The American made system retails for $804 and can be purchased through FarmTek’s website at www.farmtek.net, or by calling 1-800-755-6529.

Arena Werks™ Lonestar by Snodgress Equipment
Sound and consistent practice can make the difference between being a good barrel racer and being the best. Now you can also have sound and consistent ground every time you work the arena thanks to Arena Werks™ Lonestar arena drag. Snodgress Equipment, the makers of the Arena Werks™ line of drags, is proud to introduce the Lonestar, an arena drag designed specifically for barrel racing. Like other Arena Werks™ drags, the Lonestar moves dirt in a circular motion, evenly distributing dirt for a level surface area with no clods. While the original Arena Werks™ drag consisted of one eight-foot circle, the Lonestar features four, two-foot circles spaced further apart to leave more traction on the arena floor. This traction will help barrel horses maintain their footing during tight turns, leading to better times and reducing the chance of injury. The smaller circles also fit closer behind the tractor for less resistance. The Lonestar features eight rippers also designed to create more traction while still breaking up dirt clods. It is held to the same manufacturing standards as other Arena Werks™ drags, including welded or replaceable teeth. The Lonestar is available in 6-, 7-, 8-, and 9-foot models with prices ranging from $2,900 to $4,300 depending on size. To find an Arena Werks™ dealer near you, visit www.arenawerks.com or call 817-645-5200.
