Barrel Racing


“A facility, long known around the west for its immaculate ground conditions and fast times.” –Women’s Professional Rodeo Association

We take pride in ground conditions and strive for consistency from the smallest to the largest of races.  We have the highest respect for the equine athletes and their jockey’s and have had the honor of having the “best of the best” stop the clock on our soil.

We strongly believe that in order to have the best ground you need the best equipment. Here at the South Buckeye Equestrian & Events Center our consistency in ground conditions is established through the use of the Black Widow Groomer. The Black Widow Groomer is a premium ground working implement: that is easy to operate and produces superior footing for equine training or events. The patent pending design allows the Black Widow Groomer to level the ground without interference from the tractor bouncing over rough terrain. And with enough weight, the machine can rip up hard-packed ground and repack it to your desired footing needs.

We have had several individuals clock unbelievably fast times on our approved standard pattern here at our facility.


Sherry Cervi | MP A Man with Roses | 16.646

MP A Man with Roses, “George,” is a half-sister to World Champ MP Meter My Hay, “Stingray;” they are both sired by Pro Elite Sire Incentive (PESI) stallion PC Frenchmans Hayday. The horses both come from the same bloodlines that helped Cervi win her first two WPRA championships: Stingray’s dam is a three-quarter sister to Jet Royal Speed, “Hawk” while George’s dam is a three-quarter sister to Sir Double Delight, “Troubles.”

“It was kind of like the arena record run on Stingray,” Cervi told the Barrel Racing Report. “I knew George was smooth so I knew it was a good run but I didn’t realize it was that fast.” With one of the fastest standard pattern runs in history, Cervi and George were never challenged for the 1D Championship. She won $1,846.
