Pembroke Arena


Pembroke Arena will host the National Barrel Racing State Show for the first time on July 12th and 13th. Some of the fastest horse and rider teams from Maine will be there to compete for money and prizes. Maine Riders have long been involved in NBHA, many qualifying for the World Show in Perry, Georgia every year. Barrel Racing is a timed event where horse and rider as a team compete against the clock to complete a clover leaf pattern. If the barrel is knocked over the horse and rider are disqualified.
